    Out of curiosity: I've noticed a lot of people buy chicks and eggs. I am wondering if they have a hen to raise them, or do chicks know by instinct how to be chickens?

    Thank you for sharing.

    yes, they know by instinct. They need each other though, so one should never have just one chick.
