June 14 – MORE CHICKS!  These are the Cornish cross chicks I purchased last month, for delivery today.  There are 26 wee little puff balls (that in 8-12 weeks will be ready for roasting) and 2 wee turkey poults (the brown puffs above).  I placed them in the brooder box with the 6 other chicks and at first the original chicks were not pleased.  Later, everyone was sprawled together in a great sleepy heap.  Watching chicks sleep is a very peaceful and relaxing past time, and you could die from the cute.
