Left to right: Loretta, Patsy, Dolly, Tammy.

My neighbor Bruce stood at my back kitchen door with a peeping cardboard box, and knocked, and suddenly the time was at hand. I thanked him, took the box, and busied myself with newspaper and a heat lamp, chick starter and water mixed with a little corn syrup. I'd been preparing for this a long time.

Like, my whole life? I'm so happy the day is here.

I love the little "peep, peep, peep" sound they make. Nothing like the soft, fuzzy joy that is baby chicks.
