I have received word from home that another box of chicks has arrived.  We already have a slew of meat chicks and several ducks just sprouting their first feathers, now another batch of fuzzballs.  This new batch is destined for a life of laying eggs.  Theoretically.  They’re in the house right now.  My nine-year-old gave me a full report, and I could hear her grinning over the phone.


The chicks in this photo were actually last year’s batch.  Several of them grew up to be featured on a book cover.
