So I got the idea to have Santa bring my little girl and boy some chicks for Christmas. I have spent the last week immersed in reading about how to take care of the little buggers. I built a brooder, got my supplies, and last night got the birds! I know that they will be "my kids" but I am so intrigued by them. I can totally see this becoming an obsession. My name is Reagan. It is very nice to meet you all!
