Followed my chicks' arrival via texts from USPS. So fun for us and the kids!

    So we plugged in the tracking number for our box o' chicks to the USPS website and have been getting texts as to each stop they've made! So very cool! 5:38am they arrived to our main Albany, NY location and *should* be sent the 8 or 9 miles down to me this morning!

    It's kind of like Christmas--can't wait to get them started and then snap some pics!

    Well, so far so good! All 27 made it! Made Quik Chik water and Grow Gel on a plate with food. All seem vigorous and eating/drinking/napping. Brooder is working well.
