    My youngest daughter is moving and has "farmed" out all of her chickens to her sisters and her Mom(me) of which i am gaining 3. One happens to be my 10 year old grandsons favorite chicken who he has SPECIFICALLY said " I want Grandma to take care of it no one else"....ahhhh nothing like a little pressure on a first timer..oye!!
    So,i am taking on this great task,but looking forward to it. As my oldest already has had them for a few yrs and she close by,i can readily get her help as well as she can help her other sister too.I am hoping that once my grandson gets moved into a new home and settled at some point,i will hopefully be able to bring him his chicken (still kick"n and screaming).

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! How nice of you take some of your daughters and grandsons chickens in. I'm sure you will enjoy them very much. Have you checked out the learning centre? Lots of fab articles there that will really help you. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    Hi and welcome to BYC - hope your chicken-sitting doesn't turn into a hobby for you as well as your daughters [​IMG] It's strange how such silly little things can become so addictive!

    Good luck

    Welcome to the forum. Good luck giving those chickens back, they'll suck you in, I bet.

    Custody dispute. I've seen them about dogs on Judge Judy, maybe it's time for one about chickens.
