The chicks have arrived!
The chicks came today. Odd to pick up our "mail" on a Sunday, but they arrived at the place they go before getting sent out to the post offices and they called with the option to come get them, so we did! Elle was SO excited! Murray McMurray sent us an extra 3 chicks so we got 28!!! What a tiny box they were shipped in, for body heat in traveling. We had to "teach" each of them to drink water by dunking their beaks in the water dish before letting them loose in their new home (a large cardboard box). Elle just loves to sit there and watch them. It'll be fun to see them grow!
