A Visit from the Stork
When the chicks arrived, I couldn't wait to rip open the box and see my new friends. Our kitties were interested in the chirping cardboard box.
One chattered her beak all day long. We finally realized she had never figured out how to drink. I dipped her beak in the waterer several more times, and eventually she got it!
Next week, we will start taking them outdoors for some fresh air. We'll also begin handing out treats like meal worms and raisins. There have been no signs of roosterdom so far; here's hoping these are all hens! We ordered them from My Pet Chicken this time in order to have more assurance that we'd obtain only ladies this time. We're keeping our fingers crossed!
Any suggestions for names? We are continuing our theme of musician names.
