We’ve all been there, enticed to take a peek into the peeping bins and tubs of day old chicks at the feed stores. They are so irresistible and sweet. Watching them is so entertaining and fun. I could spend hours observing their antics and interactions. One of the toughest decisions that I usually have is how do I chose which ones to take home? Selecting chicks can sometimes be an overwhelming process. Picking the healthiest and strong chicks is not difficult if you know what to ask and what to look for.
One of my favorite times of the year has always been Spring. Somehow I love it even more now because it includes preparing for chicks! Chick Fever is very catchy for chicken keepers. The variety of breeds, the lure of colored eggs and the cuteness of fuzzy day old baby chicks is enough to make one feel absolutely giddy with excitement. Over the years, we have encouraged many beginners to start keeping chickens. If you are thinking about starting out this year, we have created a five part series Guide to Getting Started that covers all the essentials.
This year, Tilly’s Nest has joined up with our sponsor, Manna Pro, to celebrate Chick Days. We are proud to be part of their celebration and join the Chicken Whisperer and My Pet Chicken to have some fun with new and old chicken keepers and promote the joys of keeping chickens. Be sure to visit the Manna Pro Chick Days website for rebates, promotions, educational information and resources. Our flock has relied on Manna Pro’s products and information over the years and I think you will too.
