    Anyone have an tips o how to tell what you are looking at when all the breeds are together in one bin? Last year I found some silkies, but those are easy to pick out...

    ALSO, TSC website has updated and says when chicks are coming in every state if anyone's wondering. Mine get here monday! :D

    Your best bet is to start looking at as many baby chicks as you can. Ask TSC where they get them from and start there. It is difficult somtimes to know what you are looking at. One year we pick up 4 what we thought were blue cochins and they turned out to be porcelain d'uccles. They were beautiful. I have to rmember to stay out of TSC :lau
