    I went to the library and I checked out several books on chicks and hatching, one being The Better Guide to Hatching.

    When I got home my nine year old daughter perused my pile of books and quickly snatched one and took off to commence reading it. She chose Success With Baby Chicks and I can't get her to put it down!!

    So today she keeps coming out and telling me things like, "Mom, you don't put wrinkly or dirty eggs in an incubator. " and "Mom, are you sure that your's are in a draft free area?"

    And then she asked, "When I finish this book, may I please read Stories Guide to Raising Chickens?"

    OMG I created a chicken addict!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hooray! If your daughter enjoys nonfiction, she'll probably end up being a great high school student. [​IMG]

    Quote:My daughter currently has 5 buff Brahma Bantams (Greta is my avatar) and when we went to Meyer on Sept 2 she somehow managed to get me to agree to 3 creole chicks for herself! [​IMG]

    She used her own birthday money to buy 3 RIR from TSC this past spring. She was disappointed that they all turned out to be roos. She is currently pleading her case for some RIR hens....[​IMG] Yup, I think she is a full fledged Chicken Addict!!

    She knows I have the 'bator coming and she wants to know if I am going to let her put her own eggs in there! [​IMG]

    My nine year old does NOTHING but talk about and red about chickens. She's out of her mind. Nine is a great age for facts and enthusiasms, the height of latency and external interests. Legos for some, chix for others . . .

    Ohh I know that one all too well. Guess what I am doing tomorrow? Driving an hour and a half away to pick up Silkie eggs for my 9 yr old son that sez "Mom, can I puleeeeze have a silkie" I would move heaven and earth to keep him this way.​
