It didn’t take long after walking into the feed store just to look at the chicks before I fell in love with them. Those adorable fluff balls sealed the deal. If I had any doubts about getting chickens for the first time, they were all gone by the time I walked out with a box with three fluffy baby chickens. We don’t have any of that original flock left. They lived long lives in our backyard flock and now reside under various fruit trees. I still look forward to raising chicks in the spring, and while baby chickens do need some care and attention, it really isn’t difficult to successfully raise chicks in a brooder.
