Those were some chicks we saw at the fair ... adorable aren't they? :)
Here is one of the many chickens that were there.
I really felt bad for these chickens ... sticky handed children grabbing through the bars ripping out feathers ... many had bald spots . Perhaps they should have smaller bars or chicken wire so the small children can enjoy them with out hurting them ... I'm sure the little children don't realize what they are doing. I have had 3 children and I know how fast little fingers can be.
Here is one of the many roosters that were there.
Speaking of roosters ... we can't figure out if we should get one or not. Some suggest to do so while others suggest not. So help me all you experienced chicken lovers ... what is your take on having a rooster to keep the chickens happy? Does it really make them happier? Does it affect their docility? Rooster yes? Rooster no? Let me know what you think.
Perhaps I should just stick with the roosters in the kitchen :)
