The chicks have arrived at Winchester True Value Hardware. Nine different varieties are here. We have Brahma, Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Black Australopithecus, Americana, Buff Orpington, Sapphire Gem, and assorted Polish Crested chickens. In the city of Whitewater you may be allowed to have up to six egg laying chickens, but you must obtain a permit. We have the supplies to get you started. We are open Monday thru Friday 8 am to 7 pm Saturday 8 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 9 am to 4 pm. We hope to see you soon.
