    Hello everyone my name is markay. Im new to this site. I just bought 6 baby chicks and i am raising them in my home as pets. When they get older in a few weeks i will be making them an outdoor chicken coop. I have a few questions as to what i should know and how to raise them. If anyone can help me please let me know :)

    One of my baby chicks always lets me pick her up with no problem and now she is cuddling up too me sleeping. Does she think im her mother? I want my chicks to love me and to think im there mom. Is that possible?
