the day I have been waiting for
April 21 - the day-old chicks arrive as scheduled at Adams Sport Mart. 250 Rhode Island Reds + Barred Rocks; supposedly all pullets.
My neighbor Edna assists me in selecting 3 of each; Virginia law requires a minimum 6 chick purchase.
Edna advised picking from those that were actively eating and drinking, demonstrating excellent survival skills from the get-go.
Chick heat lamps are red to prevent eye damage while keeping the creatures in creature comforts.
Here are some of the girls in their new home.
