    Hi my name is Rachel! My mom just got chicks...they are so cute/cuddly! we take them out side and play with them in the grass. Its a good way to make them comfortable with humans. Plus they are fun to watch. When we put a worm in there they start to fight over it. They pick at your colorful nails too. And a first time chicken farmer!!! No pun intended...

    Congrats on your new babies!

    They are hilarious to watch aren't they? I never realized that little chicks were so full of personality. And my favorite game is "Dive-bomb your sisters and knock them over like bowling pins". [​IMG] I could watch them for hours. My kids love them, too, so it's been a great experience so far.

    Good luck! And welcome to the board!

    They are too funny. Last night a mosquito got in the brooder area and they all stopped moving and stuck their little heads up to listen, it was so cute.

    Enjoy them!

    Just a little hint for when you post, your smilies will work better if you put a space between them. [​IMG]
