I bought my three kids chicks the day before Easter. I never intended on keeping them. My brother-in-law's sister has a nice Farmette and I was going to send them there to live once they got big. Now my chicks Daisy, Dixie, and Dinky are about seven and a half weeks old and I am totally in love with them. I got a Boomer and George Tree top chicken coup where they will live once we get it put together. My babies are currently in a large cage in my sunroom. I let them run around the sunroom about six to eight hours a day. I am constantly cleaning up their dropping because I am a clean freak. They are so sweet with little personalities. They love treats and actually liked to be petted. I never in a million years would think chickens can be pets. I am so glad I found backyard chicken so much great information and people just like me who love chickens.
