Waconia Farm Supply, also known as Elk River Farm Supply, was a chick magnet this past week.
The store had Pick-A-Chick Day on April 25, so people like the family of Mike and Maralee Sjerven could buy individual chicks and not have to place a minimum order that goes beyond their desire.
It was popular, and the store plans to run another Pick-A-Chick Day on May 9.
The Sjervens, who moved to Otsego last weekend with their family, were some of the first customers. They bought 11 chicks and supplies for their hobby farm.
“This is what we’re starting with,” Maralee said, noting sheep are next on the family’s radar.
