Coastal Farm and Ranch Give Out Chicks to Get Ready for Spring

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA-- Coastal Farm and Ranch in Yakima gave away free baby chickens Saturday.

It was their annual Chick Day where they give out 500 baby chicks to get ready for spring and also teach kids the responsibility of raising an animal.

The chicks are only a few days old, which gives them a higher survival rate when they go home with their new owners.

"A lot of kids come in and ooh and ahh over the chicks and you know, the chicks are only a few days old and the ones we're are giving away today are only about 4 days old," said store manager, Dave Pittman.

A dozen Coastal Farm and Ranch stores throughout Washington and Oregon State gave away the little cuties.

The stores received a total of about six thousand baby chickens from a hatchery in Idaho.
