Lookie What Came in the Mail!

So the phone rings at 5:12am this morning.
A sweet but exasperated sounding woman on the other end of the line begged me to come to the post office to pick up a package.

This is the package.
What could it be?
Otis didn't trust it one bit.


I slowly and cautiously opened the box...
ooooh Hello there!


The seasons Chicks & Ducks are here! Yippeeee!! I just love getting the first chicks & ducks of the season!! Babies... Is there anything cuter than a baby?? This is the first year for ducks... I am in love!


Don't feel bad for them because they are all cramped together in a little box. They ship them that way so they can keep each-other warm and snugly. These little guys are only ONE day old! And they have already made their first trip far from their parents to their new home! Amazing man! just amazing! Did you know that a baby chick doesn't need food or water for the first 2-3 days of life? This is how they can ship em. They are still using up their yolk from their egg. It's just too cool!



I'll be back in a bit to show ya how we get the cute little guys settled in... Till then Otis will keep his eye on 'em.
UPDATE
We got the chicks all settled into their brooder.
I took each one out of the box one at a time and dipped their beaks into the water and set them under the heat lamp. The seem to be doing Great!

The ducklings are at home in their plastic box in the boys bathroom too. Is there anything cuter than a duckling? Nope.. I don't think so.

Pin It!
