Yeah I have that problem too LOL my wife rolled her eyes when we came home with a bucket of peeping chicks.

Ok,... there were no bullets, but you get the idea!

Ok, now that you've fleshed out your story a bit... I can't let it pass.  Local police beat:  2 brothers hauled into jail for picking up chicks in the seedy part of town.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

UPDATE****    So...3 of the chicks turned out to be hens! I rehomed the rooster, one hen went to my inlaw and I have two nice "wild" (sort of tame-ish) birds. They lay tiny creamy bantam sized eggs, kinda reminds me of some Mille Fleur eggs I used to have. One of my wild hens already turned broody and she is sitting on some Copper Maran eggs. I am trying natural incubation this spring.

 

The other one turned out like this:

 

Here she is with the rest of the crew:

Well....we thought for the longest that this grey one was a roo but...... he is a she and she is broody now lol.
