Look!

Look what arrived at the post office for us today!!!

Live baby chicks!!!

We ordered 20 baby chicks back in March and at 8am this morning we got a phone call from the local country post office that our chicks had arrived! We were all so excited that we immediately got in the car to go pick them up. They had travelled from Missouri and have been without food and water for two days.

We ordered 5 production reds, 5 silver wyandottes, 5 americaunas (they lay the green and blue eggs), and 5 buff orpingtons.

Both boys loved to watch them scurry about and listen to them peep.

The chicks are Riley's business venture. They'll not only provide our family with enough eggs to eat and bake with but we'll sell the extra to our hay customers and Riley will have his own business. More to come on this later....
