The telephone rang at 7:45 this morning. The post office informed us that we could pick up our box of chicks right away! We knew the babies had been hatched and shipped on Monday and we were ready for their arrival. As we stood at the counter in the post office annex, we could hear the peeping loudly from the back room---a good sign that they had survived the journey.
With no further ado, let me introduce the new girls:
Many thanks to my teenaged daughter, who took the glamour shots of the chicks---not an easy undertaking.
