Hi! So I know that whenever you get a new pet, whatever it is, you should ALWAYS do research on how to care for it and if you have the means to care for it first. Normally it's the kids who violate this rule, but in my house it seems to be the parents. Yesterday my Mom came home from work with a baby chick, some parent at the Pre-K class she works in gave it to her. The parent in the class didn't tell my Mom how to raise it, it's age, what to feed it, anything. We've had it since yesterday around 5:00 PM and have kept it in a cardboard box lined with paper towels. All it's had is about 5 teaspoons of Quaker's Oats, some rice, quinoa, and water in a tiny dish. It's really become a handful because it kees flying out of the cardboard box. Chicks are NOT supposed to fly out of their cardboard boxes. *facepalm* So right now I've been Googling and Yahooing and forum reading, and most of the sites tell you what to feed them according to their age. I have no idea how old it is, except that it's still young. Big help, right? When I hold it, it pecks me and bites my thumb, but it doesn't hurt. Last night it was way calmer, but probably because it was exhausted from the transfer of home>school>new home. I had to chase it around my room for about ten minutes to get a distinguishable picture of it because when I held it it would squirm like crazy. Hopefully the picture might give you some idea of its age. What I'd really like to know is what to feed it for now and anything else helpful with it.
