We got our chickens this weekend.  We went to Double S Tack and Feed in El Cajon.  It was a bit of a drive, but we had really liked the store on our first visit.

The previous weekend we had gone out to Double S.  The store was hosting a customer appreciation party to celebrate the store’s first year under new management.   They had pony rides and street tacos, and it was fun.  They had a pretty good selection and the people there were very nice. While we were there picked up everything but the chicks. We got the heat lamp, wood chip bedding, feed, feeder, waterer…

The selection had thinned a bit during the week.  The delawares were gone. We had intended to get 3, but after we picked them out, the guy said there was a ‘buy 3 get 1 free’ deal (I’m pretty sure he fabricated that right on the spot as a way to move some aging inventory) so we took the extra one too. We got 2 barred rocks, 1 star, and 1 rhode island red.  They are happily occupying a large box in the basement.  I took the week off work to entertain/enjoy the babies and to put the final touches on the coop.
