Another sign of spring?
Baby chicks arrived!
We ordered a rather large batch of laying hen chicks this year and we always love holding them.
We usually order from Murray McMurray and are always happy with the healthy birds they send. This year, however, was a huge disappointment. Well over a dozen chicks died within the first 24 hours. I called the hatchery and they said that the birds were a day late arriving. They are sending me replacements out this weekend. I truly hope that they are healthy and timely in their arrival. Customer service was friendly, but it is still very heart breaking to lose so many chicks.
Of course yesterday Devin and I ventured out to run errands and guess what we found at the tractor store?
Aren't they the cutest little things?
The children are usually found gathered around the brood boxes staring at the little things in pure delight. They are also naming them and picking ones out for their "own."
I am sure warm weather is just around the corner. It just has to be..........
Happy Friday! Here's to a new season of life just around the corner!
