It's the season for chicks

Chick season is here. These chickens have feathered out and are getting closer to going outdoors.

Chick season is here. And if you are like me it will take every ounce of your willpower to go to any feed store and not walk out with some cute little chicks. While chicks are super adorable, they also do require a bit more care when they are little.

First you are going to want to do some research on the different breeds. Some are better egg producers while others are bred to have a little more meat on their bones. Make sure you choose one that is geared towards what you are wanting.
