I'd spent the morning in town running errands, visiting the farmer's market, etc. I arrived home to a message that my new babies had arrived at the post office. I quickly got back in the car and headed in to pick them up.
What adorable girls! We ordered from My Pet Chicken, and the chicks are gorgeous! We have 6 Rhode Island Reds, 4 Easter Eggers, and 2 Buff Orpingtons. We carefully checked each one for pasting up, and then dipped each one's beak into the water, teaching them how to drink. Once that was mastered, we dipped the beaks into the food. I don't know what I expected, but this was much easier than I thought it would be.
Someone thinks she is the chicken mama!
