Our new baby chicks should be shipped Wednesday and arrive Thursday. We’ve been getting everything ready for their arrival – new tub, plenty of wood shavings, medicated feed, sterilized the watering containers. The guys on the radio were talking this morning and I thought I heard them say “snow” so I looked at our weather forecast.
This is typical Texas weather I suppose. We had 70º days over the weekend, nights were in the upper 30’s. Yesterday I was out in the garden with flip flops and a short sleeved T-shirt. If our chicks get shipped Wednesday, they will be in a post office or in transit on Thursday night and our low is going to be 15º. Not good!
Our other baby chicks were a month old over the weekend. They’re pretty much feathered out now and could go into the big coop if the weather was warmer but they’ll stay in their tub in the shop for probably at last another month.
Wish us luck with our new arrivals. The weather certainly is not cooperating but if they are alive when we get them, we can keep them warm and keep their bellies full.
