Pets require a big investment of time, money and love. Before deciding on which animal you'll invite into your family, check out our list of animals not recommended for young kids.
Baby chicks may seem cute, fluffy, and playful but the reality is that they're also prone to being crushed accidentally by over-enthusiastic kids. Additionally, they provide a risk of zoonotic disease i.e. contagious diseases spread between animals and humans. Also, remember that chicks wont remain chicks forever! It's very tough for a kid to take care of a chicken or rooster, tempting though the thought of fresh eggs may be.
