Our chicks came today!, they are 24 hours old, 13 total, each a different type of laying hen. They need constant attention, so we're hanging close to home for the next few weeks. Each chick already has it's own very individual personality, and the kids love them.

They were delivered by our postal carrier in a cardboard box (top photo) We set them up in the garage, with a heat lamp, they're very sensitive to heat changes and need to be in a draft free 95 degree environment for the first week of life.
