First off, although I am new to the forum, I have lurked here and found lots of good information on how to raise my chicks. I grew up on a farm, but haven't had chickens in over 20 years. We decided to finally get some layers because a) I don't want to support battery farms, and b) home grown chickens/eggs are so much healthier. So here are pics of my 6 years old with his chicks, who he loves very, very much. The 3 weeks old ones are Barred Rocks, and the little ones are RIRs.
