Tempted to buy a baby chick?

 

Resist!

Behind the fuzzy ball of cuteness hides...

  • 10-year commitment,

  • 6 weeks constant care and monitoring,

  • a terrible dilemma if she turns out to be a rooster,

  • cruelty : 99% chicks come from hatcheries, and hatcheries kill the male chicks.

They are not toys. They are a big responsibility.

Learn what’s involved in keeping chickens, before introducing them in your backyard.

And consider adoption to save lives.

Say no to hatching projects

Too many chicks from school hatching projects are looking for a home and will never find one.

 

Watch this fascinating animation of the development of a chicken embryo in the egg. There is no need to hatch eggs to learn about the miracle of life. 


Here is a useful webpage to learn about the dilemma and alternatives to hatching projects:

ALERT - Virulent Newcastle Disease

Virulent Newcastle Disease has been confirmed in the Bay Area.

It is a highly contagious virus that can kill up to 100% of affected flocks. It also can be carried by and infect other birds – including wild birds and pet birds.

Virulent Newcastle disease is a reportable disease.

Very strict biosecurity is key to protect your chickens and all the chickens in California.
