Adorable and practical, backyard chickens are back!
For homesteaders, fans of backyard chickens and kids across the state, it’s a great day. The baby chicks have arrived once again at all CountryMax Stores.
Customers can see these fluffy little friends in custom-made “peep nests,” featuring a viewing window in the side.
They’re warm under the heat lamps, just waiting to find their new homes. Most stores have three or four varieties of chicks, including barred rocks, Rhode Island reds and Easter eggers (that lay blue tinted eggs!). Plus, customers can special order from more than 50-plus varieties.
CountryMax said, “Chickens are very social birds. That’s why New York state requires a minimum purchase quantity of six. Don’t worry, CountryMax has plenty. They also carry all the feed and supplies needed to start a backyard flock, including coops, shavings, chicken wire and a variety of specialty items.”
CountryMax custom-built special “peep nests,” so even the smallest kids can get a good look at these baby chicks.
