So, I started out my chicken career with 8 Chickens. 4 Black Star Sex Linked and 4 Leghorns. We wanted eggs. Seemed simple enough. A week later after reading many many many posts on BYC I decided that perhaps a few more would not be so bad. It just so happened that a week to the day my local TSC had chicks! I only found out because my boss's wife was on the prowl for some chicks and she called to let me know. I ran up there, with my partner, in an ambulance (no lights or sirens I promise LOL) and RAN inside. I could hear them as soon as the doors opened. I made my way quickly to the bins out back and there they were. 5 Bins, 5 Breeds, peep peep peep peep peep peep peep....Not a single sign indicating who was who. I put my trust in the TSC crew as they very diligently counted every few minutes, made sure they were well watered, and counted down to feed time. I was early but that was ok, nobody needed my professional services and my partner may become the next BYC'r! The time came, the crew said "who wants chicks?" I let the bosses wife go first, she notified me and was there longer at the very least. She was looking for some bantams, all hens, and I wanted a bantam rooster...If I was going off the deep end with my honey I was going to go big! TSC will not sex chicks, but there was a girl there on our side of the fence who was taking care of that for us (we hope). My turn, how exciting! I was going to get my rooster and 5 meat birds. They had Cornish Rocks, PERFECT! I got my rooster, named him Cogburn by the way, and 5 other chicks. My problem presented itself yesterday.... I was back at TSC (go figure...and it is so close to Home Depot) and noticed they still had chicks...Now I am no fool, I have payed my price for bringing them home, telling her that one may be noisy, but the others would feed us in a short while. She was not happy with me to say the least. So, I was NOT buying anymore chicks. I was simply observing them, as well as the signs that indicated the breeds...(insert scary music here). So I looked at the sign on the first bin where my Bantam came from...NOPE! Americauna. Ok, no big deal, I am ok with that. Down to the next bin where my Cornish Rocks came from...NOPE! LEGHORNS...I already have 4...now I have 9...Oh my 13 laying birds...not good. I called my boss immediately and told him of the issue. He took his wife up and sure enough there was a mistake, on the part of TSC. I am heading down to get my money back, they will not take the chicks and I understand that. I will wait til next year for my meaty birds. Be well my chicken friends, I am off to build a huge coop!!!!!!
