    Hi Hannah-

    My very first pet was a chicken! Yes, true.

    When I was a wee-lad the crossing guard who safely crossed me to and from school every day of my elementary school life surprised me with two fertilized eggs in a hanky one day (see how old I am, they actually used hankies back then, LOL). I ran home so excited!!

    My Kindergarten teacher lent me the school incubator to incubate them in.

    I read and learned all about them, set it up, marked the eggs and waited.

    Well, about the time they were about to hatch we had to go on a family vacation for the week. I was sooooo upset that I might lose the eggs from not being there to care for them, I punished my whole family by causing them misery and upset the whole week. :D

    On the way home, I badgered my parents, blamed them for everything, the whole nine yards.

    When we got home I raced into the room where the incubator was, expecting the worst case.

    To my surprise one of the chicks had just poked through the egg!!! I sat and watched both, helping them occasionally. they both hatched and were instantly imprinted to me!

    Those little chicks followed me everywhere, I just loved them to pieces.

    When the time came, I had them placed at the local park zoo/sanctuary. I visited them most weekends until I finally lost track of them.

    So, that's my first pet was a chicken story! :D

    Good luck with yours. I'd love to be able to bring my boys down for the hatching out. I think it's such a magical moment for a child to witness. Of course they don't like to eat eggs after that for a LONG time. ;)

    Dom, you aren't old, silly!!!! :D
    I've chosen my egg to watch so that she will follow me around, although I already have a chicken that follows me. Perhaps I can talk my dad into letting you guys visit.

    Going a little further off. You are a Floridian. Did you know that they just changed the law here? To have mallards now in Florida, you have to have a game farm license and permit. It seems that the mallards that have gotten away or have been turned loose by their owners are breeding with native species and it is to the point where the native breed is at the verge of decimation.
