I was at a friend's Halloween party on Friday night. They had about 6 baby chicks (I could tell they were barred rocks and both he and I were surprised I knew the breed name by the look of the chicks). Well, I asked where he got chicks and he said the feed store (Alamo Feed for those in the Bay Area). He said they have chicks almost all year long!?!? I seriously hope he isn't right, or I'm going to have a major problem keeping away from there!!!
