Picking up Chicks

Mark and I picked up the first order of chicks today.  Here’s what happens when we get chicks.  First, we get a call from the post office early in the morning.  Then we leave home early to get to the post office before the store opens at 8 am.

We knock on the door at the pick up window.  Usually the post office staff are ready for us.  We can hear the chicks from outside the pick up door.

Aren’t they cute?

We put the chicks in the preheated brooder at the feed store.  Food and water are waiting for them.  It’s important that the chicks get quick access to food and water after their long journey.
