    ... figure out a way to refer to chicks other than "my babies?" We aren't chicken 'mothers' or 'fathers', we are chicken 'owners.'

    I call mine my chicklets.
    Except for the chicks from my millie trio, which I call my 'grandchicks'.

    I may not be their parent, but I'm a foster mom and I love my chickers!!!

    I hear ya Poulets. I grew up in a house where the dogs were considered equal (and in some cases more important). I have 2 dogs, I love them dearly, and they are very well cared for; but I have never and will never refer to them as "my babies". I have three children and they are worlds more important to me. I get that with some it's just a figure of speech but that particular one looses it cuteness when the animal takes precidence over the children.

    Well, some are called the future egg layers, some are called eye candy and then there are those appropriately named Dinner.

    I don't call them my babies simply because I have never been that attached to any of them...

    Chris you are too funny! I only call the babies my babies. The chickens are the girls. And my turken is the delinquent. And I have BO I call Hannibal.
