Hubby purchased the chicks at Northern Colorado Feeders Supply in Ft. Collins, CO. They are a day old and already have had a busy life: shipped from a hatchery in New Mexico to Ft. Collins, CO, then
traveled to the Garden Spot. He had ordered 10, but not all them arrived, so we have six: two silver laced wyandottes, two brown leghorns, one brown leghorn, and one unplanned choice, the little white americauna. The other four will be in next week. For now they will live in their little Rubber Maid Brooder in the dining room underneath a heat lamp. So far the 3 cats are pretty much ignoring them. Max, the bird dog, was bit excited when something new came into the house, but the chicks no longer hold interest. Our little grandsons will be here tomorrow night. They will be thrilled.
