When I was in elementary school, someone would sell baby chickens in front of the school every spring.
Baby chickens were very very cheap. As far as I remember, it cost ten or twenty cents in dollar at that time.
Me and my siblings bought them a few times.
Living with chickens is one of my best memories in my childhood.
And it also gave me more information about animals than watching an animal documentary.
For example, I thought all animals had the same face so they wouldn't recognize themselves by their faces.
And especially animals that had a low IQ such as chickens, I presumed that they didn't have their own languages to speak each other.
But I realized chickens had different faces and they had their own voices so we could easily find out how they felt like.
I don't raise any animals right now since I realize it is really a hard work and takes a great responsibility.
But I really love to see chickens on SNS.
I didn't know a lot of people around the world were raising chickens as a pet in their yard or inside the house.
It is hard to face the fact that knowing how chickens' characteristics are and almost every chicken is suffering from livestock industry.
The worst part is I don't do anything to help chickens such as becoming a vegetarian or helping them in other way.
I wish I would help chickens to have a better life.
I saw some people adopt chickens rescued from street where they were being abandoned or from a chicken factory where they were going to die anyway not as a food.
If I had a chance I would adopt chickens from there.
