Lots of good looking chicks there!

Just back from going to Del's Farm Store and doing my runnin' around. The chicks have a new feeder and a much bigger water source. Dang it's hard walking away from those chicks there. They have black silkies (I hope that's the right term) not ready to increase the flock. 8 is enough but I did hear once it was "cheeper by the dozen" so I dunno.

I realized when I was out with the chick they are 3X the size when I bought them. They grow really fast. Yeah you all know this but its all new to me.smile.png

The chicks were shipped via Delta Air Cargo from Florida. They have special compartments for pets on the regular passenger planes. We picked them up at the Delta Cargo office which is near the intersection of Hwy 99 and 188th. It costs more but chicks arrive the same day. It's an excellent alternative for expensive chicks. I hear more and more bad stories about the USPS and chicks. We used to show dogs and have shipped them via Delta. They always take really good care of the pets.

Living well with chickens.

here's hoping he does well & heals up fast !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Hi everyone,  This is Ron's wife, Diane.  The surgery went well although the doctor said the tear was worse than first thought.  It took about an hour and a half.  We got home about 4:00 and he took a short nap - just had a little soup and toast so he could take a pain bill.  He feels  nauseous but not constant.  He will be typing with one finger now so might not be on for a day or two but never fear, he'll be on here.  He appreciates everyone's prayers and well wishes.

 

Too many chickens, too little time!

Glad Rons surgery went well. Rotor surgery right? Those are a witch.

 

AnniesMom, those are so darn cute! I did not know you could transport chickens by plane. I'd be a bit nervous over that. But AWESOME!

At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

Thanks Diane for the update. Tell Him Hi for me. Did Keri tell ya I was trying to check on him earlier? Hope all went well and that he is able to get back to gathering those nasty white eggs soon.
