The Chicks Are Here

    The Chicks Are Here!!!

    The chicks were born on 9/22/10 and arrived from Ideal Poultry in Cameron, Texas
    to our local Post Office in Kona, Hawaii at 6:30AM on 9/23/10. I was shocked that
    they made it so quickly! I ordered 25 chicks with the plan of keeping 6 or 8 of them.
    We have 11 and they are all named. So I'm afraid that we will be keeping 11 at least
    "until they get bigger and lay eggs, Mama" my daughter says. We will see.
    Their names are:

    One Day Old
    On the way home from the post office.

    The chicks just loved the GroGel.

    Black Australorp chicks

    Ameraucana chicks

    Rhode Island Red chicks

    Barred Rock chicks

    These are the ones we kept. Two of each kind. Black Australorp, Rhode Island
    Red, Ameraucana, Barred Rock, and Buff Orpington. We ended up with one
    more chick, Henrietta, the cream colored Ameraucana, she's our number 11.
    Remember we were only supposed to have 6-8 hens. Hmmm, something about
    those cute fuzzy chicks is hard to resist!
