    I only need 6 or so this year so I don't want to place a mail order. Does anyone know when Orschelns gets chicks in? I am specifically looking for Giant Cochins (TSC doesn' t get that breed) and I got 2 at Orschelns last year. I really love the Giant Cochins demeanor.

    Uhm, call them and ask when they will be getting chicks in? And ask what breeds are coming, also mention what you want? Some feed stores will add to their order for you.

    I saw a tweet from Orscheln's and the chicks are shipping to their stores early next week so they should be in the stores by next weekend (Feb 26). I would call the local store before going. Thought Ranchhand had a good idea to ask what breeds they're getting and see if you need to order Cochins or not.

    I did call but they were rude to me. They said in a few weeks and they don't know what they get. "Just come in. I don't know!" Well snotty lady maybe I will shop elsewhere.
