We got a VERY exciting phone call yesterday telling us the chicks we ordered were waiting for us at the post office.
My Madison pain-stakingly researched which breeds are prolific layers and have friendly dispositions. We also thought it would be fun to have multi colored eggs, so we factored that into our research and ordered females that would give us tan, blue, white, and dark brown eggs.
I actually shrieked into the phone, which could explain why the postal worker was less than excited to see me and requested to verify my identity by looking at my driver's license.
Apparently, there has been a rash of ladies who pile eight kids in a van and head to the post office on the off chance they will be able to steal some baby chicks.
