    We thought it would be a great idea to get out 4 kids (13,11,9&6) chicks for Christmas. It's a hit so far!! Even the 6 year old helps clean up poop, which I consider a parenting score [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under McRaeEggers [​IMG] Welcome and Happy New Year!

    Have the kids given the chicks names?

    I am glad you joined BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Great idea to teach the kids when they are young. Remind them to wash their hands well before and after visiting the chickens. [​IMG]
