Spring Chicks...

Monday a box of 50 chicks arrived at the Chelan post office. I dropped everything to go pick them up knowing they would be packed in a small box and most likely been in there for a couple days! Their little home, an old apple bin (large harvest bin-carries about 900lbs of apples) converted to a warm (90-95 degree) dwelling was waiting for them back at the greenhouse. I pulled out one chick at a time dipping their beaks in the water, teaching them how to drink, someone needs to teach them! Well here they are a few days at the farm and they have learned to eat, drink, sleep and use their voice. I must admit it is a nice noise to give me company while spending hours in the greenhouse seeding for spring plantings.
