It's almost time, once again, for chicken enthusiasts to flock to St. Elmo Feed & Seed, 9001 Highway 90 W., to welcome some new arrivals. At 7:30 a.m. on Friday, February 6, the store will host its annual "Breakfast with the Babies."
The event lets customers enjoy doughnuts and coffee as they visit with each other and check out the 2-day-old chicks. This spring, the store will offer several rare breeds, as well as the more popular, common ones.
A complete list of expected poultry can be found on the store website. New birds will arrive every Friday through April 24, McCarter said. For more information, call 957-2177.
At the 2014 Breakfast with the Babies at St. Elmo Feed & Seed, some Mobile Bay Area Backyard Chicken Club members and Tracy McCarter of St. Elmo F&S were on hand to answer questions. Pictured are, from left, McCarter, and Sharron Fobes and Marj Gray of the club.
