I opened the box at the post office to make sure they all made it and did a quick head count. I ordered 25 and they were to send 1 extra exotic rare breed as a bonus. I counted 26 bobbing little heads and made sure they were all alive. I thanked the post master and skipped out of the post office totally giddy with these cute little critters chirping loudly in the box in my arms.
At home Hubby was busy mixing up the medicated water that we have to give them as a preventive measure. We only give it to the peeps for the first week and then they are unmedicated for the rest of their lives. He also turned on the lights and did the finishing touches on the brooder. He made sure the basement brooder was nice and warm when I got home with the peeps.
We got home safe and sound and went to the basement. There I pulled out each peep out and dipped their beak into the water to make them drink. I was also counting them as I was doing this and ended up with a total of 27 peeps.
I hope you enjoyed reading about these cuties! More to come later! Stay tuned.
