Ever wonder where baby chicks come from?  You’ll be happy to know that baby chicks actually come in the mail.

Once hatched, baby chickens have about 3 days worth of nourishment in their bodies. When you PRE-order baby chicks on the Internet, they are shipped almost immediately upon birth.

They are shipped in special boxes, that the post office understands how to handle.  We got these from Hoover’s Hatchery in Iowa.   So, if you’ve ever been interested in getting some chickens, go ahead and give them a call.
