I referenced these sources in another thread. I thought it would be nice to add to the Poultry Row subgroup.

Chickens are wonderful and rewarding birds. Do not underestimate them :)

I'll pass this info along to my daughter who has 8 chicks right now. They are inside the house for a few more weeks, in a big tub with lights above them. It's 2 of 4 different kinds but I can't remember the names right now. The kids play with them all the time and they are very friendly, getting bigger every time I see them.
