Poultry By Post

Amazingly, hatcheries will shove a bunch of newborn chicks in a box and send them to you via the postal service.  It’s always a treat to hear the phone ring at 7AM and have the post office tell you your ‘biddies’ are in, come get them.   These are 25 Cornish Cross chicks who should reach full size in 7-8 weeks.  We’ll keep them under a brooder light until they get big girl feathers, then they’ll share one of our poultry tractors.  The other one is currently full of turkeys.

    I love little chicks! I actually used to work in telesales for a company that sold baby chicks in just this manner. 😀
