We have chicks

The post office called and thevhad a package of chicks for me.  Belive it or not you can ship live animals via USPS.  I set them up in a box in the basement out of any drafts with wood shavings, feeder, water and a huddle lined with radiant foil insulation (more about this later).  I haven’t found that I need a heat source,  they all huddle up in a corner.   Of course I think part of the reason this works is their are 39 chicks to keep each other warm.
