We have had our chicks for 4 days and are first time chicken owners. I am hoping to have an enjoyable experience! Our goals was to have some "different" pets with the benifit of fresh eggs, but find myself becoming anxious about all the prospects of something going wrong! I have read several post of people culling chicks because they are a roo and ill mannered chickens ending up in the soup pot. Please know that I am absolutly NOT passing judgment or starting any debates (I eat chicken! ), but just know that would not be a option for myself to follow through on. I hope that I am not in over my head! Any other "pet" chicken owners out there that are glad they entered the chicken world?
