Special Delivery: Poultry via USPS

My happy husband got the call today that our day old chicks arrived at the post office. I happened to be at home camera in hand when he arrived. Our chicks will live in our garage for a few weeks until they are big enough to be in our backyard coop. I am sure there will be many pictures to follow, but here is what it looked like one day one.

For those of you who might be interested the chicks came from www.mypetchicken.com

We ordered four different kinds of chickens:

Barred Plymouth Rock


Easter egger Bantam

Red Star
