Our little chickes hatched Saturday and were shipped jam-packed in a tiny box, arriving at the house of a couple we met at a party over Christmas. During that evening, a conversation led to an agreement to split a box, almost as casually as if we were ordering a pizza to share and not 25 live animals. Wanna go halves on a quiche?
The brooder in set up in the basement, and I can already see we're going to need a larger space for them to run around in. It's only been five days since they hatched, but they're already developing their wings!
