I have waited all winter to add to my flock of 2 SLW hens. Finally the big day arrived and my 3 year old grand daughter and I went to the feed store. We came back with 3 red sex links and 3 black sex links. Grand daughter has played with them all week. She is very gentle and loving toward her chicks. It has been a blessing to her parents as they have been doing more work on our house from the leaky pipes in December. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=433964 Last night at bedtime she went into the utility room to say goodnight to the chicks. I heard, "I love you chickens. I love you so much, I wish I could take you home with me, but I can't. You have to live here with Mamaw. I will share you with Mamaw, you can be her chickens too." She went on and on talking to them while I listened. How precious. The chicks are doing fine with all the love and attention they have been showered with. They are lively and happy as chicks can be. I thought one or more might get "loved" to death, but grand daughter and chicks have it all figured out. My daughter is a college professor and her husband is almost done with his bachelors degree to become a kindergarten teacher. They have educated their tiny tot way beyond her years, then she comes to Mamaw's and Papaw's house where I educate her in gardening, dirt, horses, manure, chickens, poop, compost, gathering eggs and picking vegetables. I am excited to have chicks, my first on over 30 years. I feel so blessed to share the experience with our grand daughter.
