Today we added a few new members to the Ts’ family. The phone rang early this morning to come fetch our chicks from the post office. Yes, for those of you who might not realize it, when you buy chicks mail order, they are sent, well, through the mail. Not even Express Mail, mind you. Priority mail – 2 to 3 day delivery.

The little fuzzy things all arrived alive which is good since when we first ordered chicks two had arrived dead, having been smothered during transit.

Much like babies, you forget exactly how tiny these things are when you first get them.
