Thanks @Chook Newby
The chicks were actually an Easter gift for my young daughters (3 & 4 yrs old) so we had to get babies. ❤️ Never in a million years did I ever think I would like chickens but they have grown on me. I've even had a few sleepless nights worrying about our special little Carla. Hahaha!! I have already found this site to be so helpful!!!
Isn't it funny! I was the same...never ever thought I'd ever have chickens but now I have them I am just chuffed! They are the funniest things ever. My parents visited over easter and the three of us just sat outside during the days and watched them roam and play in the backyard. They had us in hysterics!
I got them on a Saturday afternoon and I didnt sleep a wink that night! I was so worried about them all alone in thier coop lol. I was up at the crack of dawn the next morning (very unlike me on a Sunday morning) to check on them. Then I had to go to work on the Monday. That was a terrible day! I couldn't concentrate on my work ALL day for the worry. I rang my son as soon as his bus dropped him home from school and made him go out and check on them So I understand what you are going through.
Yes the people on here are lovely and I love seeing photos of everyone's chooks and coops.
Good luck with little Carla. And enjoy seeing the little poppets grow and develop their personalities... it's so much fun
