poop. poop, and more poop. your day now consist of tending to chicks your human family will just have to fend for themselves. that brooder that you spent so much time making perfect, will quickly become to small. you will now waste an enormous amount of precious time watching chick tv. friends and family will think you have lost it when you learn to talk chicken. the thought process of saving money by having you own eggs is backwards , that first dozen eggs is gonna be pricey....you will need to start saving for the incubator cause you will just have to try hatching....now on the bright side, this has been a life changing experience and i would never go back... feel free to add your experience these are just the things i have noticed and my chicks are only 3 weeks old.
