So I was looking through my local CL yesterday like I do every day and in the pets section there is someone looking to rehome 2 chicks. These aren't usually in the pets section, but the farm/garden section. Anyhow, in the ad it states that she is pg and didn't know that she shouldn't have chicks while pg (news to me and my 4 kids LOL!). So I emailed her stating that I would be happy to take the chicks but also informed her that there should be no problems with pregnancy and chicks, just take normal precautions like washing hands before eating and such. She emailed me back asking if I could pick them up ASAP as they were going out of town. She sent me her address and directions and boy was I SHOCKED to see that she lives in an APARTMENT!!!!! 2nd story no less..... the chicks are a rir and lt. brahma. Not exactly bantams or something you would like living in an apt. with you. Anyhow, she was very nice, just a little bit clueless and she gave me the 5lbs of chick starter she had bought for them too. They were in a small rubbermaid box with hay on the bottom and a small dish for food and water. I think she had only got them the day before. They seemed cold and were chirping very loudly. I moved them to the smaller box with shavings in it that I had brought with me and my oldest daughter kept her hand in the box with both chicks snuggling under her hand We got them home here and put them under the light with the 3 day old turkey poults who were just fasinated to have new brooder mates They ate/ drank and promptly fell asleep. I don't think she had them under a heat lamp.... Now I know what TSC sells 6 at a time....... Why would you buy chicks when you live in an apt? Her husband probably flipped when he saw them and she was blaming the rehoming on her pg. Anyhow, they are safe and sound now, where they belong. I didn't ask her why she had chicks in an apt because I was just glad she was rehoming them even though everything in my wanted to shake her and ask her WHY??? I would take pics but hubby has the camera and won't be home until tomorrow night.
