Chicks Arrived

6:47am the post office called to tell us that our new chicks had arrived from Ohio. They were a day late. I went down and got them. The chicks were cold and lethargic.

I put them under the heat lamp. two could not stand on their own and I started giving them water with honey and vitamins. The sugar shot woke them up. The temperature is about 90 in their box, now, and they are cheeping away.

Here is a picture of one.

    I don’t understand how they survive the trip from Ohio- arent they stuck in a box with no water/food/heat, etc.?

    It looks like two are going to die.

    Chicks have enough food stored to last them more than 48 hours after they hatch without food. The box has a little chem packet that gives off heat. Still it took two days to get here and it should have only taken 1.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
