The babies are here!
For those of you who can and want to see them in person, the little ladies are going to have an Audience on Saturday afternoon from 3 – 5 pm. There won’t be as many of them here since a friend is coming to pick some of them up this afternoon, but there will still be four or five little cuties to pass around. Let me know if you’re planning to attend.
I checked with our mail carrier yesterday afternoon and he assured me no chicks had arrived for us that day. So it came as quite a surprise to get a phone call at 5:50 from the post office, saying that they would be closing in ten minutes and I needed to come get my chicks. Yikes! Good thing I have a lead foot and know the back way to the post office!
The CE and I dipped their beaks in the water and showed them their food, and in no time the ten little beauties were eating, drinking and pooping up a storm.
There will be more (probably endless) pix later but wanted to let everyone know right away that they arrived safely.
