Yellow Baby Chick
Featured Products in This Gallery

Peep, Peep, Peep

This baby chick is a few days old and for sale from a traditional feed store located on the outskirts of a large city. Chicks can also be acquired from chicken breeders, garden centers and online hatcheries. You'll want to know the breed and sex of the chick, as well as whether it has been vaccinated before finalizing your purchase. Choosing a baby chick over a pullet (teenager) or adult chicken has its advantages but comes with additional responsibilities and care. Like any pet, make sure you are confident the chick is in good health and has been housed in a clean setting.
