My baby chicks arrived today! 26 tiny chicks packed in a little box at my post office. Chicks in the mail! I got 20 buff orpington females, 5 males and 1 mystery “rare breed” chick which you get free when you order 25. All the babies are doing great. They are eating and drinking like crazy. They sure seemed glad to get food after their long trip across the country. The are boxed and mailed the same day they hatch. According to the box mine hatch around 10am on Tuesday, September 15th. It is so hard to believe that 26 chickens take up such little space! It wont be long until they take over my yard!
