    Hi!
    We're new chicken mommies to 3 chicks a few days old. One was an assisted hatch and I wonder how less overwhelmed we'd be if that wasn't the case. ;) but she's hanging in there!!
    I grew up with chickens but raising my own is definitely a different ballgam... Enjoying the challenges and learning curve and cute chicks so far.
    Oh and my 4 and 6yo are over the moon...
