We counted the chicks as we placed them in the pen. There were about 100 chicks per box. The chicks went straight to the food and water!
It was really funny how the chicks followed each other around the pen. Even though the chicks were small and hardly weighed anything, they made a funny pattering noise as they chased each other around the pen.
I checked on those chicks a lot--sometimes because the chicks were so small and soft, they were able to slide out of a tiny hole in the pen. It was so funny to see one or two chicks standing outside the pen, they didn't seem to know what to do!
