I recently visited a friend's farm. Their family has horses, milk goats, dogs, and many chickens, and since it is summertime, their hens had tons of cute babies. I got to hang out with them all day, and ride their horses, milk their goats, and learn about their farm. I loved it! I am a country girl at heart, and I hope someday to have a farm myself. I have been wanting to keep chickens for a long time, so when they offered me six of their chicks, I couldn't say no! I now have three black chicks, one light brown, one dark brown, and a white one. I still call them chicks, although they are probably old enough for me to be calling them pullets (females under a year old) and cockerels (males under a year old).
For a week or so, I kept them in a wire dog kennel during the daytime(minus the bottom so they could eat grass and bugs), and then at night put them in a cage in my garage. They are still small right now, so they had plenty of space.
Here they are in the dog kennel:
Here they are enjoying their new home!
