That's raising chickens! This whole experience has been nothing, but awesome. I've had a few stressful moments when I had a sick chick or if they were too hot, but it's been pretty much easy going. I bought my chicks young and handled them everyday. It's paid off well and every single chick is very friendly toward all people. I free range in the evening and my chicks go back when they are done. They like to be out of site and in the woods. Last night after an hour of being out in the woods, I sat in the middle of my backyard. They saw me and the whole clan came running toward me. A couple jumped in my lap and the others hung around me out in the open for a while before heading back. My SS follows me whenever I clean the coop. She is right under my feet and I need to watch where I step. She wants me to sit down and hold her. It's amazing how friendly they are. I never expected this. I was expecting them to run from me when I was near. They are very cuddly once they are near egg laying age. I love raising chickens! I'm pretty sure I'll have a flock of ladies from here on out.
