    Noob question, but would it be better getting your chicks in spring/summer then getting them in fall?

    Dose the warmer temps help the chicks to grow, rather then cooler temps of fall/winter?

    Just got my order of chicks today for the first time in the spring time but i usually get chicks in fall..

    Need personal advise!!

    Spring and Summer are best.
