Hi all! My son's kindergarten class is hatching chicks and we have chosen to bring a few (3-4) home with us! I just found this website yesterday, and I'm already hooked! The new little ones are scheduled to hatch on 5-25, and they will come home on 6-3. I'll be learning a lot in the next few weeks, and I'm looking forward to getting great advice from all of you chicken experts out there. I'd love to hear any advice you have for newbies, so feel free to bring it on! - Full-time working mommy with 2 boys (6 and 4.5 years) and "baby" girl (just turned 2). Married 9 years (and counting), living in Northern California (South Bay). OK, I thought of my first question: Is there anything I need to be careful of when having my kids handle the chicks?
