It is that time of year when the sounds of hundreds of baby chicks fill the air at Eagle Hardware Farm and Ranch.  Beginning the last Friday this month, February 27 our first of many shipments of the fluffy creatures arrive.  From then to the weekend after Easter (April 10), there will be a variety of breeds from which to choose.  Please note, if there is a particular breed you would like to add to your flock or begin with, please let us know by calling the store at 972-635-7878.  Some breeds go fast and each year we always are happy to reserve your selection so let us know.  Too, know that we will always have ample supply of Purina’s Start and Grow as well as all the items necessary to keep your baby chicks watered, warm, wormed and well kept.  I guess while we are at it, we will also have a few ducks!

Here’s a list of breeds to reserve today:

  • Black Australorp
  • Barred Rock
  • Buff Orphington
  • Rhode Island Red
  • White Leghorn
  • Ancona
  • Ameraucana
  • Silver Laced Wyandotte
