Since my silkie will be hatching chicks soon, I wonder how old a child needs to be to enter a chicken at the county fair? I was thinking of giving the GS a chick to raise for it, but DH says GS is too young? The bird would have to live with us since GS lives in town, meaning I would be responsible for alot of its care. GS could come over and help though. The GS is 5.
