    OMG!!!! I'm sure glad I grew up in a different time. This world is getting so paranoid about everything. I guess this means I shouldn't let any of my 11 grandkids anywhere near the chickens??? LOL!

    I love rubbing my chicks against my cheeks, and my chickens get kissed all the time. Strange how I'm not dead.

    I'd be more worried about dirty kids giving the chicks a illness.

    after seeing what some kids will do to a chick. I am pleased they were kicked out.[​IMG]

    I swear. Are they trying to weaken the immune systems of children on purpose? Or is it a "we dont want people to know where the meat comes from" thing
    *I have to admit. I am surprised my own dd eats chicken still

    People are getting so paranoid these days. And people like Mr Clary dont help it one bit

    My nephew lives next door, he adores helping with our chickens. The rooster even likes him to pet him. However, as far as worry where his meat comes from......he wants to know how long it will be until he is able to eat one of our chickens. He gets excited everytime his mom or I cook chicken, in hopes that he can taste what its like to not have something from the store. Unfortunantly for him we have no meat birds so he can try anytime soon. So he is patiently waiting until spring. He is six.

    Rhett&SarahsMom - I agree with you totally!

    I am a nurse and have seen how parnoid people are especially about their kids. I work for a old timey doc who thinks that we have "bleached and sanatized" our kids and it is making them sicker than they should be. It is quite normal for children to get dirty and touch things they should not. That is why kids eat their buggers! [​IMG]

    I wonder how my grandmother manage to keep all 13 of her kids alive and well on a farm with not only chickens but pigs, goats, cows and any other farm animal you can think of. Oh - and what about manure? I am sure they would all not be getting up past 60 years old now including my dad if they EVER touched manure. [​IMG]

    Some people are too paranoid for their kids own good.
    I do believe in keeping my kids safe but I do think they should be kids! [​IMG]

    I loved being a child and helping my dad in the garden with manure. I aso loved to help him clean a rabbit that he had raised for us to eat, or a deer he has killed, oe a chicken for that matter. Part of my childhood was spent touching things that were not "sanatized"!

    If some of the parents were worried about their kids getting something from the chicks then they should not take them into the petting barn.
