“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.
I lifted the flap to peak inside and cute, tiny, fluffy chicks peered back at me.
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.
Day one of this experiment is a success!
