Guess what came in the mail today? Believe me, you’ll never guess…
Isn’t amazing that they send them in the mail?
These baby chicks are only 3 days old. They can live for up to two days without food or water since they continue to live off the nutrition received from the yolk. So, that makes it feasible to send them in the mail.
These baby chicks are the newest residents of Double S Farms. Chicken Farmer, my sister, has everything all ready for them.
She wrote about her preparations in an earlier post “A Pair of Boots and an Empty Chicken Coop”.
Buff Orpington chick
Barred Plymouth Rock chick
Their names are Flo, Effie, Ramona and Lucy.
The chicks will spend the next 6 weeks in their brooder, above.
But soon, they will be moving into their new custom made chicken coop.
We are all looking forward to fresh eggs…
