Hello everyone! I am from Florida and am new to chickens! I got my first chick exactly 2 days ago (Monday evening). I didn't plan on getting a chicken, but a friend at my work found one roaming the streets over the weekend. He tried to ask some neighbors who have a coop if it was theirs but it was not and they did not want it. My friend wasn't sure what to do with the chick either! I told him if no one else would take it then I would take it in and learn how to care for it. So, I picked her up on Monday evening and have been reading and reading and reading here and online ever since! I love all kinds of animals. My family jokes that my husband and I should just open a zoo because we have 3 dogs and 7 chinchillas and now.....a baby chick named Nova!
