44,000 Chicks

We had an opportunity to visit the chicken houses this past week for the arrival of the chicks. The following photo is of the unique forklift that is used to unload the chicks and transfer them to the houses.

Now, let's unload the chicks...

There was a little extra excitement when some of the chicks spilled out of the boxes!

Jacob found a very unique chick right away...


Can you see "Spot"?

There will be 44,000 chicks in here when they finish unloading. They have 4 houses. So, that's 44,000 x 4!

They found the food right away.

...and the water.

I sorta got a "hen complex". For some reason the chicks were very attracted to me.

So soft!
