I went through TWO WHOLE FREQKING YEARS OF CONVONCING to get to parents to say yes to getting chickens!!! So I called my local TSC and they were all out. Apparently chickens go like crazy. So I called a store about 35 min away (Somerset Pa) and they said they had 9 RED PULLET. I said to re guy working "are you sure these are EGG LAYING HENS? he assured me that they were. I saod are you sure they will be RED chickens??? He assured me they would be red. He said he only had 9 left I said perfect Ill be there in 35 minutes. My mom and I Litterly RAN out of my house and drove their!!!! I wasn't showered yet or anything!!! I got there and try were cleaning the bins and the lady gave us nine chicks. I was ESTATIC!!! I came home got them in there brooder, heat lamps were pee heated, I filled up the water jug, food bowl, then I took them and dipped there beaks in water so they drank. I did EVERYTHING I WAS SUPPOSED TO!!! Two weeks later these thongs have feathers on their feet and are whate and black!!! The one is huge compared to the others. I'm like what the heck are these thigs?!?! I called and there line ohhh I don't know what they are. I called back one other time and they said I'm sorry. Ifyou want you can call re manager from mon-fri 8-3... So my mother called and the lady checked what she got it the day we got our chicks.... She said they were what brahmas... She said okay are they good egg layers? She said Hmmmm it was a straight run. I am devastated because my mom won't let me keep the roosters! And then the phone call was over. My dad wasn't happy at all!!! [none of us were] he said I want a refund or somthing. They said the manager just had a family emergency and hatch leave short notice but the asst.. Manager assured us that our problem would be fixed. So my dad has to call tommorw morning to see if he can gret us more chicks and or if we can get our money back... I really want more chicks because some of the ones I want now will be roosters light barahams aret great egg layers! I have to give away my babys! I spend hours with them a day! Taming them and getting them used to people. Has anyone els had this problem and do you think they will order chicks for me? it's almost easter and they said at my local stre today they wot be getting any more in. But I did t get them at my local store it was in sometset.
