WineRelease.com's April 15, 2021 Monthly Newsletter.

This month we had 143 winery updates and 94 wineries releasing wine.

As always in Spring time, a big month for releases.

We ordered chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery in Iowa and they arrived this morning. Yesterday the USPS text reported they were in St. Paul so I was worried that they would not fare well and when the box arrived, four were standing and chirping and two were listless on the bottom of the box. I tended to the four live chicks by dunking their beaks in water then GelPro Plus chick starter and told my 9-year-old daughter to do the same to the two listless chicks. The six chicks will I thought to myself that one had a 25% chance and the other 50%. But to my surprise, my daughter nursed them both back to health.
