Yes this is an exciting time! I went to Tractor Supply and purchased 6 chicks - 3 reds and 3 yellows. Having my granddaughter bee with me didn't help since we both got what my DH said was "OVERLY EXCITED" since they were just chicks... afterall. BUT after we got them home he asked - what breed are they? hmmmmmmmmm ... well you know I don't know? I know they are RED & YELLOW. The old clerk said they were all female egg layers..... oh dear. That might be helpful. So I went back to TS and there were different colored chicks in the bins we got ours out of. So that didn't help. The line was WAY long... so I just left. Does anyone have any idea what they might be? I guess it doesn't matter but I'd kinda like to be able to tell people what they are.
