The brooder is all set up – shiny new heat lamps are installed, an overhead automatic watering system is in place, mason jars waterers are filled, feeders are set out.
Now where are the chicks?!
My hatchery in California tells me that my 600 Cornish-Cross babies are enroute but transit has been taking two days instead of one. I’m imagining fluffy yellow chicks standing in long TSA lines at the airport. It makes me laugh so I don’t worry too much. I am looking forward to getting them out of their boxes and into their plush new living quarters!
