Super excited about these little cuties - I hadn’t planned to get chicks again this year, and was instead going to get some older pullets, as I was going to be busy with school. However, now that we’re quarantined, I have the time to raise the chicks! I didn’t have any totes on hand large enough, and the kennel I usually use is taken, so into my 40b they went for the time being lol

Oh they’re just too cute!

Chicks? Chicks? You put chicks in your fish tanks? What do you do when they start flying around the house ?

By they start getting too big for it, I should have the normal kennel freed up and they can go out in the chicken coop lol

I'm sorry, did I miss something? Why did you respond with "Sad"?

Awesome, they should give you plenty of eggs!

You're gonna lock em up instead of letting them fly around the house We had a blue jay once that our cat chased and we caught just before she pounced on it. We had no clue where the nest was so it was either keep it or give it to the cat. After a few months it started flying. Then I went off to camp before we could decide with to do with it (I was like 10 or 12 at the time). It mostly stayed in the shoe box where we fed it (cat wasn't allowed in my room while we had the blue jay; cat was unhappy with me and made it clear it wanted to play with the blue jay). Anyway that is my experience with self aviator machines.

Are you serious? This isn't the same thing as having a fledgeling blue jay.

Ah, well, these are chickens, they don’t fly They’ll stay in the (very large) kennel until they’re old enough to free range with my older chickens

Not overly serious after all it would be a bit messy having birds fly in a house - they don't exactly learn to use the litter box.

My sister used to keep chickens in the back yard for the eggs. I'm actually not a big fan of birds though the hawks used to amaze me.

Those are adorable chicks! I had wanted to get some this spring, but being too busy with both fish and dog stuff, am waiting (impatiently) to get them next year

Thanks! And I’ve totally overloaded myself with stuff to do during this quarantine (which is good with me lol) between school, fish, training three horses, and now the chicks, I’ll definitely keep busy lol

I’m off work, which gives me so much free time as well, I don’t know what to do with myself!
I will be getting a kitten soon (another reason I decided to hold out on the chicks) which I am VERY excited about, but it will definitely be time-consuming, especially with properly introducing my 2 dogs to the kitten.

I have a feeling by the time this quarantine is over I will have twice as many pets as before

Ooo that is exciting! And yeah, I feel that

Tell us more about the horses. My sister use to help train show horses.

Well, one of the three is a horse I’m leasing until his new owner can fully pay him off (long story). He’s a dun tobiano paint horse, and was previous a trail horse that took out public trail rides. He I can do whatever I want with, really. I am starting to teaching him some trail obstacles (the arena kind) and get him going over some smaller jumps.
This is Bandit:

And yeah, he’s just kind of perpetually muddy because he likes splashing/rolling in the pond lol

The second horse I’m not doing a whole lot with. He caught his foot badly in a hay feeder and so was lame for quite a while, so I’m just giving him a refresher and getting him back in working condition a bit. He’s a chestnut draft cross (what exactly that cross is, I don't know) who is usually used for endurance races.
This is Merlin:

And the third horse is a young stallion I’ve worked with a few times before. He just needs a refresher on his ground manners, lots of strength ing exercises, and he was just started under saddle a month or so ago, so I’ll be building off that a touch. He’s a smokey grulla quarter horse (the owner is planning on breeding him to two mares this summer for the first time and I am super excited to see the babies!
This is Vanzi:

He’s hard to get a pic of because, despite my best efforts, he has yet to understand that personal space is a thing
