Today after school (since I was in the area) I went to my local feed store. I was looking forward to this all week because I wanted to JUST LOOK at the chicks. Well I get inside and there are...NONE. I ask the lady what gives, I mean, where are all the babies? She told me that all the hatcheries are sending chickens (I'm assuming eggs) to China because "it is the year of the chicken" (rooster). They get their chicks from Ideal. Has anyone else heard this? She said they might get some in a week or two. I live in FL and this place gets chicks almost year round so I'm really surprised.
