On the way home from our staff meeting, I stopped at Rural King. Guess what cute feathery little fluffballs I found?
There were just a few bins of them, but they were all pullets.
Farming tip: Let your local store know your name and number in case they can’t sell the chicks they have right now; if you get lucky, you might pick them up at a couple of weeks old for under a dollar a piece!
Lots of people will tell you it’s too early/too cold for chicks, but if you have a good coop or broody box set up already where you can keep the temperature constant (remember, they need it HOT!) or can keep them in a room inside for the next six weeks, they’ll be fine.
