Have you ever wondered why you got into raising chickens?? Every day that goes by, i wonder more and more!! I worry myself sick over these guys. I worry about diseases...I made a mistake by getting 3 BR's from a local farmer and they were sick and died. I got 4 babies for an internet sight and 1 died and i think another is sick. One of my BO's has something wrong with her eye. If i'm not worrying about disease then i'm worrying about preditors!! I leave them in their run unless i am outside with them. When i let them free range the hawks are flying above and i become scared to death. Lastly, i worry about whether it's becoming to cold for them outside. I just put my 7 week old babies outside last night and they did fine. I on the other hand didn't sleep at all because i was worried about them getting to cold. I read as much as possible on how to care for them and do everything i can to keep them happy and healthy!! As much as i love them,they are just like having children!!! I worry myself sick!!!
