8am.....The Peeps arrived at the Feed Store:
They flew into Portland Airport...
We rushed to the feed store to pick them up...
They arrive in little boxes...
They are sorted by breed...
They are 2 days old.....the size of a cotton ball
They go right to the water feeder.....
They are thirsty after their ride on the airplane.
Gunner patiently waits outside in the pick up:
Gunnr just adores the baby chicks
Gunnr gives them a good smell,
then we head home with the new babies
Brad unloads each chick and gives them a drink of water
Rhode Island Red Chick
Gunnr is excited to have baby peeps again...
Within minutes the baby chicks are eating and drinking
and scurrying all around the brooder box
The chicks will be raised in the 4 x 8 foot brooder box
over the next 3 months

This will be Gunnr's view...
while the chicks are living on our patio behind the house
Now I better head out to the Thread Shed and
get to work on the
