I've always believed that the fun and responsibility of raising baby chicks was beneficial for kids, but not actually having a family kept me from thinking about the sibling unrest that's pretty much inevitable. She said each of her kids has a specific job; feeding, watering, and dispensing treats. Sounds like an idyllic household, though this is likely not that rare among families that share this great hobby. I confess to being unaware . . . Kudos to all who bravely soldier forth in times of war, feast, famine and assorted emergencies. Nothing like a brooder full of cute little fluff balls to make everything 'all better.'
