Three D&B stores will be hosting a free class with our Nutrena reps to learn about how to care for chicks (feeding, housing, health), raising them to adulthood, laying hens (feed, housing, health), molting, and a brief bit about meat birds and gamebirds. In other words, we will discuss what to do from the moment you buy a chick and take it home, through the desired result  of egg laying or butchering.

If you are wondering when chicks (and other birds) will be arriving at your favorite D&B Supply, give them a call. Every store has a unique list tailored just for their customers.
