Baby Chicks Arrive in Selah Store's Mail

Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash. -- Barry's Tack and Feed in Selah received a special delivery yesterday just in time for Easter. The sign went up late yesterday morning letting everyone know that baby chicks arrived, but what many don't know is they arrived with the mailman.

The store receives all their geese, ducklings and chicks through the post office.

Glenda Barry owns Barry's Tack and Feed and she explained to us how the chicks survive the journey.

"From when they hatch they can survive two days without food and water. So they were sent Priority mail and have two days to get here," said Barry.

Barry's welcomes parents and kids to stop by the store this week and check out the chicks.

The Yakima Health District reminds parents to make sure their kids wash their hands after handling the chicks to avoid picking up Salmonella.

Barry's says they're chicks have received a clean stamp and they personally clean the chicks and their cages everyday.
