Chick Day 2008

When the phone rang this morning at 6:45 I knew it was Chuck down at the post office. I could hear the baby chicks peeping in the background. So I went right down to pick up the 50 little birds. Here are a couple of videos and pictures of the chicks.

Okay it doesn't get much cuter than that! It's almost hard to believe there are 50 in there! Where did they come from?

You know you're from a small town when... the Post Office guy calls you at 6:45 to let you know your baby chicks are in.

they were shipped yesterday from Iowa. When a chick is hatched they get enough nourishment from the yolk they consume just before coming out of the shell to last for a day or so.
It is quite amazing that they can ship them like that.
There was probably room for about 15 more chicks.
