I just joined this site tonight and im very glad I did. I have a about a week old ( just his wings are feathered) Cornish rock chick. s/he was bought for a pet and not food or to lay eggs. I have never had any sort of chickens before so im very new to this. My question is is there any way I can keep this baby healthy as a pet? I children are getting attached very fast to "Dave" (from the movie Hop The Manager at tractor supply told me they make great pets and they life long happy lives but as ive read its not true. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
