The Chicks Have Landed!

“Your Chicks Have Arrived”

As this was our first time having chicks, I was really worried. As soon as I got the tracking number, I was continuously checking, anxiously awaiting their arrival. Finally, this morning, I got the call:

Peter Naudus? This is the Warrenton USPS post office. Your chicks have arrived, please come pick them up as soon as possible

I piled the two older kids in the car and off we went!

When we arrived at the post office, I could hear the chirping from the lobby. This is the first time that I’ve ever said, “Hi! I’m here to pick up my chicks.” Random quiz time: Did you know that you can also send live bees and scorpions through the mail?

And just like that, they handed over a box with a chirping commotion emanating from its contents.

They're here!
They're here!

I lifted the flap to peak inside and cute, tiny, fluffy chicks peered back at me.

They made it!
They made it!

Moving Into Their New Home

We converted an old dog crate into their new home. I lined the sides with cardboard to protect the chicks from drafts and prevent debris (and chicks) from escaping.

So Cute!
So Cute!

Day one of this experiment is a success!

My daugher was really excited to hold the chicks
