The chicks were just 2 days old. They had hatched on Wednesday and were shipped that night to the farm through the US postal service. They arrived in this box. Which barely seemed big enough for the sixteen little chickens to fit into, but apparently they like to huddle together in there in order to stay warm.
Here are all the kids outside the chicken coop being annoyed that their mother/aunt was trying to take pictures of them and making them wait longer to see the little chicks!
The chicks were so new that Lou, Lou observed that some of them still had their "egg teeth." See that white bump on the tip of its beak? that is what they use to chip a hole and then crack their egg to hatch. Then after a little while the tooth falls off. It was cool for them to see that even in animals, God provides his creations with the things they need to survive!
We were thinking we should name them but they were too fast and crazy to keep track of them, so the naming will have to wait!
