n.b. Day old from the hatchery and making noise at a pitch that makes thinking difficult, the little creatures have been delivered to walk the earth, pick up grit for the crop and eat the grain crumbs before they are ready to be put out in the fields.

n.n.b. Apologies to Welsh band, Super Furry Animals for the title of this blog post.
