My nephew has asked if he can get some chickens and keep them at the farm. Wonder if he will come and take care of them. Also think it would be a great way to get him more interested in farming.

I think it is a great idea to let him have chickens. Does he live close so that he can come over daily? I'm assuming they don't live on a farm so it would be nice for him.

Chicken are great animals to start with, and I would prefer that he commences with a few of them to gain some experience. Like @pseag says, it will be beneficial to know how much time he's willing to devote in a day.

I told him last night that he could. We are just going to do a few to start. Certainly hope that he spends a lot of time and doesn't bore of them. It would be great to have another farmer in the family.
