I just wanted to know if anyone has had success in keeping a single one as a pet. I do know one person who had a single Cornish X and she lived for 2 years. I've been reading and getting depressed that our chick-chick may only live a couple of months but then I read in other places that they can live 7 years if cared for well. And one more thing...if I got more, would they have to be full-grown or can I start from a baby chick (I'd rather not do the hatching, I don't have $ to purchase what's needed). TY TY TY!
