Anticipation was brimming despite the drizzling rain as Miriam called the post office early in the morning…
“Hi Heather, this is Miriam.”
“Hey, I was just going to call you! Your chicks are here! They’re so cute, I peaked at a couple of them!”
Daniel and we three apprentices (Jonathan, Miriam, and I) went to the Swoope post office as soon as we were done with morning chores. There they were – 22oo brand new laying hen chicks… Just hatched the day before.
We brought them home and put them in the brooder.
As soon as they warmed up they started exploring their new home! We have Barred Rocks, silver laced wyandottes, and buff orpingtons. I agree with Heather – They’re pretty cute!
What are you most looking forward to in Spring?
