    Umm... I don't think anyone here will be doing the Easter chick thing, or rabbit for that matter. [​IMG]

    Welcome to the site, though! [​IMG]

    Yeah, most of us don't get tired of chicks and get rid of them. We just keep collecting more!

    In a different thread we talked about posting a thread where people could put links to adds (like craigslist) of unwanted easter chicks..
    That is what this thread is for.

    I woud be very, very hesitant about getting chicks from multiple locations and bringing them onto my place. I highly doubt they came from a really good hatchery to begin with, no doubt weren't vaccinated for anything, kept in cramp unhealthy condiotons then sent home to inadequate care. Screams disease outbreak to me.

    Even when I get chicks from a good hatchery I keep them isolated from my other birds for at least a month if not 2. I've never had any bring anything in, but I'm not going to gamble with their health.
