Chick Days has arrived!
Spring fever has hit New England and it’s time to think about adding some chickens to your backyard. If you live in central Maine, head over to one of the Tractor Supply locations listed below this month during Chick Days. Each store will have a great selection of baby chicks plus all the supplies you’ll need for their first few weeks of life.
I’ll be appearing at various store locations throughout the month for the Chick Days celebrations. I’ll be helping aspiring chicken keepers pick out their chicks, offering advice for a healthy flock, and giving away copies of my book – plus a few Tractor Supply gift cards – to some lucky winners at each location!
Chick Days Dates and Locations
I hope to see you at one of the convenient locations! Before you go, be sure to ask yourself some questions about what kind of chickens you want. That can make it easier for you to pick out the perfect breeds of chicks to take home with you from the Chick Days event. Here in Maine, cold-hardy breeds are always a good choice, but deciding if you want breeds that lay colored eggs, if you’re interested in super friendly breeds or prefer a mix of different breeds (what I always recommend), are all considerations before you head out the door to the feed store.
If you can’t make it to one of the Chick Days events, you can always visit my blog Fresh Eggs Daily to learn how to raise baby chicks, baby ducklings, and even learn some of the most common mistakes first-time chicken keepers make.
