2yrs ago my son thought it would be fun to "get some chickens, mom"!! I was all for him getting chickens. He bought 5 chicks a house and everything we needed! Then he got 2 turkey chicks! After that he moved out and left them all here "as a present"!!! My husband and i have been caring for them ever since! Last spring my other son bought some chicks for himself but ended up giving 4 to us! That makes 9!! I always check BYC for advice and now am a member!!!
