Unexpected Chicken Farmer 😂

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello! So, funny story... Saturday, my parents showed up at my youngest's bday party with my 3 son's (ages 6, 4 & 2) belated Easter presents. Three chicks! Not that big of a deal... However, we had no heads up & we are in the process of buying a house. Just a tad inconvenient... Oh, and all we were provided with was a bag of feed & the tiny cardboard box they were in. My hubby & I were in a slight state of shock, but weren't about to crush their little hearts. You know kids are great at getting instantly attached to cute little fuzzy animals.
After a quick bit of "googling" we go spend $50 at Tractor Supply on the basics. Then, a bit more "googling" over the last 3 days has proven BYC is the place to go for answers! So, here I am. I'm all in & have tons of questions!

Meet our birds! My oldest son named them Gold (obvious which one...), Peck (all black) & Nugget (black w/ white patch).

Welcome to BYC and to the world of chicken keeping/raising.  Be careful these little things are very addictive.

I told my hubby, "Well, we got them... Let's be sure they give us something in return!"

They are cute as a button.  When they are 6-8 weeks old you can post their photos at  "what breed or gender is this."  Congratulations.
