Our chicks arrived yesterday in this cardboard box specifically designed for safe and easy transport from the hatchery to the co-op.

Once home we transferred them into this child's wading pool lined with newspaper and wood chips.

We soon learned that wood chips could pose a health hazard to the baby chicks as their digestive trac isn't able to digest the fiber yet.

Now their home is chip free and everyone is safe and happy. They slept huddled together under the heat lamp and now are busy running around bumping into one another and eating non-stop.

I'm sure there will be other lessons for us to learn, so if you see us doing something wrong please write and let us know.

Stay safe and healthy and thanks for stopping by.
