We got a call from the post office this morning... around 7:00... informing us that our baby chicks had arrived and we could come get them! So, after Daddy was off to work and Clara and Mommy had done a few things and got ready, we were off to claim our little fluff balls.
We carried them out of the post office, sat down on a brick wall and opened them up. There they were. All bunched together and peeping away... as we had already been hearing! Clara was quite taken with the "babies". :-)
Now they are home and situated in their box with food, water and a light. Clara enjoys standing there watching them and playing with their food. She will hold them, but just for a short time before handing them back to Mom. One time she was standing there watching and started clapping... I think one of them had done a jump or something "impressive"! :-)
And here they are! If you blow the picture up, by clicking on it, you may be able to see one in the middle that is kind of a mixture of yellow and brown. That's our one turkey! Thanksgiving, here we come! :-) Unless, of course he makes too much of a nuisance of himself... them he may add something unique to say... 4th of July dinner! :-) When I first opened the box, I thought that maybe they hadn't sent the turkey, as they all looked so similar, but before long I was a able identify this little guy as a little different. Besides the turkey, we ordered 5 broiler chickens and 10 layers. However, unless I'm counting wrong, there appears to be an extra layer.
And now, for my favorite picture of the day...
