Spring must be around the corner in Central Texas. As some of you may know, my hubby has a little Feed Store in Pflugerville and from time to time I help out there. This time of year we start selling chicks. We order the chicks from a hatchery in Cameron, TX and they get MAILED to us!
When the chicks arrive at the Pflugerville PO, I get a call early in the morning--'You've got a package. Come pick it up. It's loud!'. As soon as you open the door at the PO you can hear the little chicks chirping away behind the counter. I make a lot of friends at the PO when I get the birds. Most people in line to mail a package are surprised to see a BIG box of birds leave the mail counter.
Here they are, save and sound, back at the feed store. Next stop is a nice warm brooder with their first meal of chick starter and fresh water!
