It seems like it should be so easy to raise those cute little baby chickens or ducks. I thought so too until I lost the first 8 chickens to a fox, spent $200 on a coop my chickens wouldn't use, and shattered my heal cleaning up soggy stinky straw. I also tried to raise ducks along with chickens and found that was a big mistake.

After several years of making my own mistakes I listed the things I learned in this book so others wouldn't have to loose pets and waste time and money. It is important to buy the right food so the egg shells are not too soft and the chicken die. It is important to know how cold or hot the environment needs to be so it will live. It is important to know the preferences your animal likes so it is happy. This book covers all the points you need to know.

When you see those cute little chicks and ducks at the farm store, it’s tempting to get one of each. However, buying what is cute can set you up for failure later, mainly because you probably won’t want to have both at one time. .These quick tips can save you hundreds of trial and error dollars.

1. Spend time with them if you want them as pets.

Chickens make interesting pets. They are smart curious animals. If you hold them and spend time with them when they are young they will like your company. For tiny baby chicks you can buy a small lap nest for the kids to hold then. My son-in-law in Arkansas used to get one every year at school for 4-H as a baby chick.
