    Hi everyone, my names Alison and I live in England.
    My son has just adopted his class chicks that they watched hatch just three weeks ago and we have decided to keep them as pets.
    I am new to keeping chicks/chickens so any advice would be great. Im loving them all already.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    My suggestion would be to get going on coop and plans for when they are grown - in just 6 weeks they will be fully feathered, half their adult size, and pooping up a storm.
