    Does anyone know when they start? The FB page says soon but I was wondering if anybody's local TSC has advertised yet? My local Agway and Blue Seal seem to be later in March/early April and I think TSC is sooner.
     
  2. my TSC guy told me mid to late Feb.

    It's pretty much a rolling startup. Weather, by area, plays a big part in when they start. Different hatcheries are used as well, so this plays a part in when it all begins.

    Thanks for the replies. I just got a tentative date of March 18 which is later than I thought.

    Must be decided on a state to state basis.

    I think it's more of a store by store basis. I called my closest one and they say March 18. Then I call one a few more miles away and they are the end of February. I was hoping to get pullets but all special orders are min. of 25 so I guess I won't be doing that. :)
