I picked up 57 chicks at the post office today.
It was kind of an accident. I was there to mail my taxes in, and someone else in the office said, “Someone must’ve ordered chicks, eh?”
And then I remembered mine were coming, but supposedly not until Tuesday.
Anyway, brought them home, got them set up in the basement, where they all looked pretty good. Then an hour later, they didn’t look so good. Long story short, I lost four of them, but the rest are loudly chirping away.
All five layers and the two roosters seem to have survived, and most of the 50 broilers.
