Finally, February 22, the chicks had arrived at Atwoods. I was so excited. Our brooder was ready for them. Arkansas required that we buy 6 chicks whereas our city, Arkadelphia, required that we max at 4. We bought the 6, but we had no idea what bread they were at the time. Eventually, we learned that we had purchased one Delaware (left) and 5 Buff Orpingtons. They were so cute and so small.
