rip little chickie

When we get home from work, I immediately check on our 6 chicks. We got home last night and as usual, I went to check on them. "One, two, three, four, five. FIVE?!" It took me a second, but I found #6. Poor guy stuck himself between the wall of their rubbermaid bin and the waterer and was on his back, taking his last breaths. I know they are just dumb chickens, but if I'm going to be honest, I was a little sad. I wondered, and hoped, that I had not done something to make him sick. He was about half the size of the others, so maybe there was something wrong from the get go. The others are doing great. They've started to get their tail feathers. I'm amazed everyday at how much they change!

Our baby chicks have arrived! We picked them up early this morning from the post office, and now they are in my work office, getting settled into their new home. I'm interested to see how the pups will react when we bring them home this evening. I'll post more pics later. All I have with me right now is my camera phone.
