    We can't really raise chicks due to a variety of factors, but have a local farm that is selling some 8 week old chickens. Will they still bond to us even though we haven't raised them from chicks?

    A few days of daily treats and they'll be under your feet like little dogs. [​IMG]

    Be sure to give grit with treats. I make it available free choice. Keep treats in small amounts so they still eat their starter/grower for proper growth.
