Talking darn TSC chick days!

Ok so i was going to go in the morning an look, just look at the last banty shipment. Well, my mom an i were out doing some running around while my son was as speech so we decided to go get feed an horse fly spray. Well i was looking at the chicks an my daughter says to the lady working " what are you all going to do when they get so big they fly out?" Sale lady says "put them on clearance." My daughter knowing i am a sucker for sales says," oh, when do they go on sale?!" Sale lady says, "oh right now if you will take some!" So we got ten an $1.50 each! I am so excited! They are all so cute!

They sold 32 reds for $1 each while i was picking out my banties, no straight runs, pullets! So if you need more chicks they are doing sales at TSC, just ask! All mine are almost fully feathered already!

Wishing my check from work would come so i could build another hoop coop an get a few more before they are all gone. Because tomorrows shipment will be clearance in a couple weeks

Why can't you? They won't be ready to move outdoors in a coop until they are 5-8 weeks old. My coop isn't ready yet, there's time.

Re: darn TSC chick days!

My chick days is ending tomorrow well not ending but no more shipments. Yea 15 is enough! Dh still said for me to go get two silkies, but I'm on the fence about more. He said now that we know they can stay full time in a chicken tractor we should put the full size chickens in the tractor an the banties in the hoop coop... Lol! It's so funny he was so scared of chickens an now he is the pushing for more chicks an coops.

Well, we are building our house right now on our property..but not living there. I am there everyday..but DH and I are afraid of putting them out there with out someone there at night. We have a nosey mountain lion that we are concerned might start trouble if we not there at night. I would love to get them now..but I don't know where my house project will be at by then. We are in a HOA at the moment in a condominium. All I have is a balcony..lol..if the neighbor complains about the kids toys..I know she won't go for chickens.

Re: darn TSC chick days!

oh, ha ha yeah that could be a problem. I had a neighbor that has nothing but a huge fenced/enclosed garden/coop/whatever on her property and she kept chickens in there for years. Not something I would suggest doing though, I felt sorry for them. She had planned to build on the land and for what ever reason never did.
