    Hi All,
    Just 5wks ago my kids decided they wanted a chick each and here i am 5wks later the proud new mum of three 6wk old chicks who have been named by the kids.. shadow, snowy and thomas. When i was a kid we had chickens, but i have never had chicks before so any advise you can give me would be great.
