Best time to buy chickens
Mid-February and March is when businesses like Atwoods in Tyler start selling chicks and ducklings, and it could be beneficial to grab one soon.
But be sure you know which kind you are looking for, and which ones will better fit your lifestyle.
For some you will need to have a chicken coup, and will need to make sure they have plenty of food and water.
But some chicken owners tell KETK that they prefer the more free-range breeds, who seem to be able to watch after themselves a bit better.
Atwoods workers tell KETK that some customers just want chickens as pets, or a hobby.
But the majority are looking to benefit from the poultry in either meat, eggs, or cash.
And if that's the case, you may want to get them soon.
