Best Place to Pick Up Chicks 

Mike's Feed & Pet

Mike's Feed & Pet may look like a regular pet store on the outside, but looking past the standard fare of fish, mice, birds, and dog and cat supplies, it's clear this downtown San Leandro pet supply store caters to a much wider audience. Particularly in the spring and summer months when they get fresh shipments of baby chicks. Loads of them. And depending on who's doing the ordering, you can pick up a number of different varieties from Americaunas (blue/green egg layers), Leghorn (great for meat), Rhode Island Reds (great egg layers), and dozens more. You can take home a handful of little, feathery fluff balls, ranging from $3.99 to $4.25 each, to start your own backyard flock. There's no guarantee on "sexing" (determining whether a chick is male or female), but the guys at Mike's are pretty good at it. Plus, the staff, led by manager Joe, is very helpful and up-to-date on most pet and livestock issues.
