I picked up just one chick a few years ago because of my youngest daughter. She went absolutely nuts when she saw baby chick our friend had. Interesting enough she never lost interest and fed and placed fresh water and gave then hugs. This peaked my interest as I began to research and try to learn a little about them. This site was always my number one site to get my feedback! Everyone just loves these animals and It makes me feel a little better when I check this site because outside of the "chicken world" they just don't understand! lol I now have 6 beautiful hens scratching around and following me around the back yard. I always consult this site when I feel I have paid a ridiculous amount of money on a bag of something I "think" my chickens will enjoy!!!
