Hello everyone. My name is Melissa. I am a brand new chick owner. We bought 7 bantam chicks today. They were really gotten for my 9 year old. She is going to learn to care for them. But I am not sure Mama can give up total control so they will be the whole families pets. Eggs will be a bonus but I am not sure we could ever eat them. We have a whole lot to learn. I have been reading as much as I can about chickens for a couple weeks now but I feel like I still don't know enough. We are working on building a coup but I know we have a few weeks before we can put them outside. Any advice y'all have is welcome!
