    It may not help everyone, but if you are in/close to the Lubbock area, HFC (finally) got their chick order in. They have white leghorns, buff orps, and RIR. Chicks are from Cackle. I will try and talk to the ordering guy on Thurs or Fri to see if they will be getting anything else.

    You should try giving Destiny Farm in Howell a call and see if Mike and Joanie have any buffs hatching out soon.

  3. 6 chick minimum. You can buy 7. Or 9, etc. Just no fewer than 6.

    You guys are missing the point. The local TSC DOESNT do it that way. The lady told the clerk she wanted 3 each of leghorns, comets and black stars. That is 9 chicks. They told her they only sell them in groups of 6. I was there, I saw it happen.

    I was trying to illustrate the level of intelligence of the sales clerks.

    Wow, that makes no sense. I can understand the minimum of 6, but if someone wants 7, what's wrong with that? That sounds very odd to me.

    The sign actually says a minimum of 6. The lady and I both tried to explain that to them. They INSISTED we were wrong. We looked at each other and I said go up the block, mom&pop feed store you what you want.

    Another reason to NOT buy chicks at TSC.

    So, I was looking at the special order form that TSC here has. It looks like there is a minimum order of 25 for chicks...

    We really want to get some Buff Orpingtons, and I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in some of them? We only need 6 pullets. :/ They had told us the other day when we talked to them that they could order any number for us, just as long as it was a minimum of 6. We still have to confirm this in store, and will be Friday. However, if there is a larger minimum order, is there anyone near Charlottesville that would be interested in buying some of them?

  9. Next time, get the manager. And if that doesn't fix it, email/call corporate......
