I finally got chickens last week. It was my fault really, I put off buying them as I wanted to make sure I had all my ducks in a huddle before I thew chickens in the mix. Well, I finally got my ducks huddled. Friday the 14th the Post Office called bright and early to alert me to the peeping arrival. These chicks were hatched on Wednesday, May 12th....so today they are a week old. Can you tell a difference? They sure are eating.
