The Chicks have Arrived!

Every day, after school, Julia and I have to do some kind of activity. It runs the exciting gamet of going to the Fedex drop box to mail off a project that must be at a photo shoot the next morning, going to the post office hoping to find an order in our PO Box, running to the grocery store - the stuff of life. But today, we went to pick up our brand new chicks at the Bernardston Grain Store. Picking up chicks is one of the "funnest" (is that a word?) things I do every year.

Walking into the Post Office or the Grain Store and hearing the deafening "peep, peep, peep" is a sound I wait to hear. The girls boxed up our assortment of Aracaunas, Buff Orpingtons, and one lone Brahma and we were off. We set them all up in a smallish box with some grain, some water, and a clip light to keep them warm. Our biggest challenge will be keeping the kittens, Cookie and Ginger, at bay - they are fascinated! Tomorrow I will find a larger box and they'll have some more room to run around. Today we're just worrying about keeping them warm.
