If it is possible to overdose on cuteness,
then that is exactly what I've done!
I am surrounded by babies!
Yesterday morning at 6:15 I picked up 29 chicks at the Post Office.
A whole box load of fluffy assorted chicklets...
too cute for words!
Everyone made the journey successfully...
arriving seemingly healthy.
A breakfast of Quik-Grow gel, chick starter, and vitamin water helped to get them off to a good start.
They will spend the next several weeks under the brooder lights for warmth.
Later in the morning the van arrived carrying Grace, Faith and Hope.
They were introduced to their new stall (temporary)
where breakfast was awaiting them.
The species doesn't matter...children are universally the same!
Faith quickly learned that it takes a lot less effort to just lay on top of breakfast.
By the end of the afternoon, everyone was ready for a nap!
The turkeys were quite curious about the new arrivals!
(As were the dogs.)
As was Moonbeam....
"I am so over all of this cuteness!"
"My bags are packed....I'm hittin' the open road."
(Hens hate sharing the limelight!)
