Hi Guys, I know many of you have small kids and chicks so I'd love your advice. We have my BF's kids this weekend and it will be their first time around baby chicks. They are SUPER excited about them and bugged us all night last night to go out and see them. The babies are about a week old and the kids ar 3 and 7. His older boy did pretty well and was quite gentle with them but his young daughter was a bit rough. It wasn't on purpose but she didn't seem to get that you need to pick them up gently around their abdomen, be gentle with their wings, etc. I was right there to oversee things and I tried to show her how to hold them and pick them up gently but I'm pretty sure everything I said went in one ear and out the other. I think with the babies scurrying around she was just too distracted to pay much attention and I'm not really sure how much a 3 year old will retain anyway. I'm keeping the shed door locked while they're here so they can't sneak in there if they somehow got out of our eyesight but I'm wondering if I should even be letting them pick the babies up? Maybe I'm worrying too much but I'm new to the whole kid thing and I would just be sick if something happened to one of my sweet fuzzfaces. At the same time I really want them to be around the animals and learn to be empathetic and kind as they don't have a lot of exposure to small animals at their mother's house. Any advice for teaching little ones how to handle them while also keeping the babies safe? Thanks!
