    Hoping to bring the chicks that hatch in my classroom this year to my home instead of having to give them up each year. It's so hard to let them go, I would love to never have to say goodbye to this bunch.
    Just trying to learn as much as possible and to listen to the advice of those who have gone down this path already.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Hatching is great fun! Starting a flock of your own sounds like an excellent idea.
    Just beware of chicken math! :)

    They are addicting.
