The chickens are home!!

The 26 chicks we ordered arrived this morning.  Went to pick them up at the post office at 6am.  They were in a box that was smaller than I thought it would be, but all were chirping away -- probably half from the jostling and half from the chilly morning air.  Brought them home and got them all settled in their new room, complete with feed, water and a heat lamp on a bed of pine shavings.  They seemed happy enough when I left.

12 Arcauna hens, 13 Rhode Island Red hens and our 1 currently bright solid yellow mystery chick (or as the company puts it -- our free rare exotic chick).  I swear he/she is like waldo in that picture... but easier to find.
