The post office called me this morning to get me the time that my chicks would be available to be picked up! We ordered them from Meyer Hatchery and boy did they get here quick! They were hatched on Monday and I received them on Tuesday! Meyer Hatchery is great about allowing small orders, with the minimum order being three chicks this time of the year!
We had the brooder all ready and waiting for the chicks arrival! We have all of the necessities, including a heat lamp with a red bulb. They require 95 degree temperatures for their frst week.
The chicks took well to eating and drinking, which is a very good sign! No troubles so far. They are very entertaining to watch.
After their long journey, they all took a nap! How cute!
We look foward to watching these little girls grow up, it is hard to believe some day soon they will be laying some yummy brown eggs for us!
Happy Gardening and Farming!
