    I got my first chickens around 4th grade, when my school started bringing chicks as part of the science curriculum. They were about a year old, a Rhode Island Red named Brownie and a White Leghorn named Cluckington.

    At the moment I have 3 chicks and 3 chickens, so 6 in total.

    We know that Brownie is a Rhode Island Red, Sunny is an Orphington, and Susu (pronounced Soo-soo) is a Bar Rock.

    Let's just say this, chickens are my best friends.

    I also enjoy drawing, reading, playing video games, and baking. Oh, and soccer, and ballet, and a
    few more things...

    Well, I have a sister and a brother. 7 goldfish, and poop all over my lawn.

    I found this website because I wanted to know how old a chick had to be to eat a worm.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. If you don't want poo all over your lawn, you could confine your chickens to a wired in dog run type exercise area.

    Well, I'm fine with it. The only problem is when I need to mow the grass.

    Welcome to BYC! I too am ok with poop all over the grass... it makes a great fertilizer if they have enough space that they don’t destroy all the grass, so you either get no grass, or greener grass, and chickens are worth it! Thanks for joining us!:welcome

    Chicks are old enough to eat a worm when they can catch it!
