yesterday was my last day at school, it was great!!!!! i couldn't wait for late july to get my 25 chicks! my dad picked me up from school, and them my day turned. i hadn't told him about the mourning dove chick (reference to closed thread removed by staff) and he wasn't very happy that i hadn't told him, he said "If you can't take care of one chick, you wouldn't be able to take care of 25." that made me ssoooooo angry!!!!!! i wanted to explain to him that i was bot prepared to take care of a prematurly hatched dove chick, plus i have a book on chicken care! (i have the offical book of BYC! Rasinig chickens for dummies!) he said "after you get back from your vaction in Lousiana, we might get a dog" i wanted to scream "I DON'T WANT A DOG!!!! I WANT CHICKENS!!!!!" but i didn't. after he calmed down and i stoped crying, he said that i might get a few chicks. as long as i get some chicks, i'm happy. so, i've been researching the breeds they have at MPC. it could be worse, he could of said that i wasn't going to get any chickens.
