Hey everyone! Just signed up because today, I got nine chicks and I might need some assistance in raising them. But I'll be posting in the appropriate forum about that here shortly. I honestly didn't think I'd care much for chickens; my mom (who more than likely has an account here, too) had been researching chickens for years because she wants to have a yard full of them at some point. We've already gathered five chickens over the past few months, and after seeing how sweet they are, I kind of fell in love. My mother knows a lot about chickens, but me not so much. I figured I'd sign up because I'm going to be helping her now. These nine chicks are my responsibility, after all! Every chicken that we've gathered is our pet, these nine little ones included.
