Chicks are here!

Our house is full of little things... a little baby, little seedlings, and now, 30 little chicks. They arrived at the Garrison post office on Thursday morning. Jason picked them up peeping and chirping away in a small box and got them right into their 95 degree brooder. He dipped each chicks' beak into the water so they could learn how to drink, and then they were off on their own... eating, walking, crawling all over each other, drinking, pooping. Getting the temperature right was a challenge, but they seem to be happy now. They'll be in the brooders for a few weeks before we set them out into the real world in their coop.
