They have arrived!

Here I present our first ever mail-delivered chicks. Black Copper Marans with a few Birchen Marans and Pumpkin Hulseys thrown in for good measure. Many thanks to Paul at Greenfire Farms. The packaging was impeccable. We lost a few in transit (I'm blaming the post office for neglecting to call when they came in nearly 5 hours before I went to inquire about their whereabouts). They're in their new little home that we prepared yesterday.
Colven helping with the chick lodging preparations yesterday. We sprinkled seed all over their outside dirt bed so by the time they can be let out they have lots of sprouts to eat and dig around in.
