they’re heeeeerrrre: introducing Lil’Peckers 2009

Your dinner arrived at the Mount Vernon post office at 6:45 a.m.  today.
Only three chicks were dead on arrival, and we were given three extra, so we broke even. Here’s to hoping the rest hang tough for the next 8 to 10 weeks.

In case you’re wondering what it’s like to drive home with 50 chicks peeping in the car, I’ve recorded a 10-second increment for you. I need you to turn up your computer as loud as possible, and I need you to play this on a loop for 20 minutes:


  

50 chickens in a tub!

One of these things is not like the others. Could this free rare bird be a brown egg layer named Billy Wray Sowash?! Hes a fiesty one.

you need to mentally prepare yourself: These are dinner.

we are factory farmers!

    “The video [I] requested is not available”
    Frowny-face.

    Am I getting a meat chicken, or an egg one? I do like those brown speckles, and I guess it would be easy to identify ol’ Billy …

    Not sure what is up with my video … Just gather 49 of your friends and all of you can say “peep” as loud as you can over and over and over again.

    That will pretty much give you an idea.

    Did I already tell you you were getting an egg layer? Unless you wanted a meat chicken, of course. I’ve never kept one alive longer than a few months. It could be an interesting science experiment to see what happens and if they actually lay eggs? It could also be a cruel experiement? That’s the magic of mystery!
