    So today I went to a local animal supply place to look at dog grooming supplies when I happened to see about 10 big bins filled with baby chicks. The animal addicted enthusiest in me decided to give in and now I have 3 baby chicks. They are absolutely adorable.

    I bought (all girls) a Rhode Island Red, an Ameraucana, and a Barred Rock. I came home with a very good idea for a setup and now after reading a ton online I have to ask... Are they really this easy to care for?!

    Yes they are! And they give you eggs and good times watching chicken tv. You're a goner now. You'll be going back to that store and building a mega chicken coop and next thing you know, you'll be hatching eggs.

    Me and my dad have always thought about getting chickens, 2 days ago he brought home 12, all i have been doing / wanting to do since then is everything related to chickens.
