Okay, so I went into my local TSC (Texas) to get an incubator and they had silver and blue cochins. I told the man I wanted 3 and he said "You have to get at least 6." I asked him why and he said it wasn't their rules, it was the State of Texas. He said it was a new thing. I said that I had seen people this year (like the last couple weeks) walk out with fewer than that. I had even purchased fewer than that at a different local feed store. He just said "You have to buy at least 6. You can get as many as you want after that, but at least 6." I told him Thank you very much, but no thank you. Is this really a new law? I've heard of no such thing. Why would Texas put a minimum on how many chicks you could buy from a feed store?
