    My 9 year old son is the main chicken keeper in our house. They are very much his pets. This is Reddi, his favorite. Reddi follows him around all day along with his dog.

    That's awesome! It always warms our hearts to see more and more young people in this very rewarding hobby. Keep encouraging him along with it. I've seen some kids unfortunately grow out of it. Nice looking bird too!

    My nine year old is the Chicken whisperer in our house too! He has quite severe autism, but seems to have a way with our chickens.
