We arrived at the feed store yesterday before 8:00 AM to select our newest chicken children. We were not alone. The parking lot was full and the store was letting people in early. Thankfully no one else was looking for sex-links. We purchased 30. We have fifteen black and fifteen red. It is a wonderful feeling to have Spring chicks in the house. We will keep them in the house for at least four weeks. We stopped at the lab for me to have some blood work done and I told the technician that we needed to hurry because we had a van full of baby chicks. She said, "Oh, I hope they are in a box!" I laughed at the mental image of thirty chicks running loose in our van. Yes, they were in a box in the van and they are in a big wooden box in the house.
