Chirp Chirp – There’s a Chicken in the Radio Station
The weirdest yet quite humorous thing just happened. One of my co-workers just came into my office and handed me a shoe box. She said look what my daughter won? I was thinking, oh look cute flip flops, then the boxed chirped.
I looked at my co-worker and said, “did that box just chirp?” I then noticed the holes on top and opened the box to see a live chick. Yes, a live CHICK! The conversation went like this:
“Your daughter won this?”, I said
“Yes,” my co-worker said
“From school?”, I asked
“From school,” she shook her head.
So my thoughts were, really, a school gives away live animals to their students? Apparently so. Anyway, here she is with a chick. The chick is here today so she can keep an eye on it. It’s just a cute baby chick.
So I helped her get a bigger box set up. We got it some water, got it set up with food. Made it a cuddly bed. The hay or whatever you put in a box with a chicken will have to come later this afternoon.
So my question is, how do you take care of a baby chick? This thing will turn into a big chicken.
I know that some people keep chickens as pets, I have seen “Friends” but how do you domesticate the chicken?
Do you have any advice for my co-worker on how to raise this chicken? Or where to take the chicken so it can be raised by people who know how to raise a chicken?
