Hello, I have an interesting chick story for you. Well, the other day I got a bunch of chicks in the mail from a well known hatchery. The local post lady called me to tell me to come quickly that most of the chicks were dead. When I went and got them, I rushed the chicks home to see how many survived. There was about 18 alive ones and 20 dead. The dead chicks were literally all stiff. So, I called my husband to tell him what had happened to our chicks. He told me to put the heat lamp on the box with the dead chicks . I didn't think it would work, but I thought I had nothing to lose. Sure enough, a few minutes later I heard chirping from inside the box. When I looked inside, the biggest and the cutest RIR was staring back at me. He is now running around in a brooding box with the others totally unaware of amazing little journey.
