What do you get when add 1 fully equipped ‘new brooder’ to a car with a full tank of gas and four Tractor Supply stores all within a half-hour drive of your house???
The answer is 18 new chicks…
6 little “strawberry blondes” from the mystery bin labelled “Pullets.” Our best guess?? Some kind of sexlink, but they could be New Hampshire Reds. Either was, they are cute.
6 little ‘penguins’ … umm, Australorps.
And 6 little Buff Orpingtons.
I’m done for this year… unless either of the 4 aforementioned Tractor Supply stores get Ameraucanas this week.
