ROCHELLE—For the past few days, the entrance of the Big R store has received more attention than usual, as shoppers gather to see the large assortment of baby chicks and ducklings for the store’s spring “Chick Days” event.

In the corral, 17 types of chicks are stationed for people to visit and purchase. As of Thursday evening, the chicks were a ripe 48 hours old, but that didn’t mean they were shy as their chirps and peeps could be heard around the store.

“It’s an exciting time for us. ‘Chick Days’ are something new to focus on and we have fun with it. The kids also love the chicks,” said storeowner, Carla Lloyd.
