Two Great Home/Garden Catalogs

Two great catalogs just arrived. https://www.lehmans.com/ and https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/ The former: do-it-yrslf tools for home, kitchen, garden; the latter for chicks by mail — which we’ve been doing for over 30 years.We've got about 25 baby chicks coming in March. It's great: we get a call from the post office: "We've got a box for you that's chirping!" We pick them up and put them under an infrared light until they feather out. This year mostly Rhode Island Reds and Auracanas.

I love the blue-green color of the Auracana eggs.

Just don't expect really purebred chickens from McMurray's. I guess they're such a big outfit that they can't keep an eye on those roosters all the time; sometimes they must go 'a-visiting'.
