How to pick up chicks at 60

I got a number off the local Craigslist for chicks at 2 bucks apiece!

The old guy (he’s probably younger than I am) has about 600 of them, and said he’d have another 200 in a few weeks.  Apparently they’re hatching out all over the place.

So tonight after work I’m going to go cruising for chicks in a senior citizen kind of way, and on a senior citizen budget.

I’ll need to stop at the farm supply store and pick up a heat lamp, a water tank, and a feeder.  And since they’re young chicks, I plan on keeping them in the garage to stay warm until they get a bit older and the weather turns more toward summer.
