I'm running a bit late today. We were without power for awhile, and to add to the confusion, this was chick day. For those who have never ordered from a hatchery, this is how they arrive...through the mail. All the way from Ohio to West Virginia.
The ones on the right are turkeys.
The ones on the left are New Hampshire Red laying hens.
Here's a little better image of the Broad Breasted Bronze Turkeys. Cute!
and the New Hampshire Red Laying hens...Very Cute!
They shipped on Monday and arrived today, Wednesday. Now they've had water, they're eating and drinking and sleeping...
There is only one thing we and they have to worry about....this 75-inch fellow is
not far away...it was on the front porch a couple of days ago when I took this picture, and though we haven't seen it since, we know it's not far away...the sounds of peeping, the smell of baby chicks.....irresistible attractions for a Black Snake.
But we'll be keeping an electric woven wire fence around the chick mobile at night, which should give any snake a real wake-up call.
