Some of this list may be repeated because of my brain. I wish we had known it would be love at first sight, and that wev would reach inside our pockets to upgrade upgrade upgrade coop area with fans, predator control, and light with cracked window so we can run to the rescue if needed. We are considering a Chicken Baby Monitor. I wish I had known watching ten chicks replaces TV. CHICKS ARE "ATTENTION VAMPIRES." Wish we considered placement of run and coop in relationship to house. We are maybe too close. i wish I had known they eat like ravenous vultures. Wish i had known more about predators, snakes, mites, lice, fleas, ticks I wish I had known there is an entire foreign language called chicken speak, and I like listening to them. I am not sure yet, because I have not yet researched it, but I think also their voices change like a teenage boyt for them to transition to new hen language?
