Chicks Conquer Jonas
There are lots of "ideals" involved in getting a batch of day-old chicks shipped your way. Nighttime lows above 45F, dry weather, efficient postal service....
To be in an area still dealing quite heavily with the after-effects of one of the bigger winter storms in decades is NOT on that list, you guys.
But hey! We received 26 chirping, thriving chicks this week and placed them in their new brooder house. A brooder house, mind you, that was still surrounded by inches of snow. Yeow.
So begins the beginning of our laying hen enterprise. I'm expecting great things from these birds!
