Hello, I have never joined an online community before. That was my life BC: Before Chickens! My husband and I have 9 chicks that are now 4 weeks old, and I am definitely in love with them! I will be honest: I never really believed people who said how entertaining chickens are, how they have personalities, etc. I quit my stressful full time job so that I could have time to enjoy life. I work part time now, and wanted laying hens. I wanted to start with chicks so that they would be tame pets, not just livestock. It is a whole new world! And we have lots to learn. And we love our entertaining girls who have such amusing personalities. A whole new definition of our new favorite pass time: watching "Chick TV".
