You might want to catch the “hatchery chicks” part of the 6 o’clock How It’s Made. We saw it the other day during the marathon and were facinated watching thousands of chicks roaming along a conveyor belt. Then again, maybe it’s just the long workdays…
Speaking of long workdays — our insomniac recommendation: Trading Spaces: Springfield Sunset at 3 a.m. on Discovery Home.
