Chicks are Here

Our new little chicks arrived early this morning! When we got to the post office, they looked very apologetic. “Yes, Ma’am, there were some live chicks that came in this morning, but that was just before breakfast. We can’t make any promises…”Β  Then out came the postal worker with a big grin and a peeping box. The kids were really excited; “Some look like ducks Momma!” said JJ. They really are quite cute, so here are some pictures πŸ™‚

Miz. Laura Little, this is for you! "Chick in a teacup"

We bought Black Australorps, Jersey Giants, and Buff Brahmas from Mt. Pleasant Hatchery. Not one is dead, and we got an extra! And less than 24 hours from shipping, too!

    Craig says “The chicken in the cup is a very interesting idea.” He’s right. We’re interesting people, you and me! Love Black Australorps chicks! Tell me how the Jersey Giants turn out. I’m doing Red Broilers, but I’m always open to a new chicken adventure.
