Yes, a chick is no incredibly rare nor sensational animal. But it is good fun to watch their life in the villages. They may have problems with the dogs, but compared with an averanged German chicken they do live in heaven. They walk free all time, can breed their offspring and the roosters can feel like an important personality for their hens. To me it looks like a fulfilled happy chickens life. Sure, it ends deadly, but this happens to all of us. We're getting stored in a coffin, a chick ends up in the frying pan. Is there a real difference?
