Really hard to be sneaky when they have to be in a brooder with a heat source...hey! You mean he would notice?
You cant have them on the kitchen table for weeks before he says, "where did these come from?" and you can say, "those have BEEN here"...and roll your eyes?
Or do the whole, "Um, I CAN'T have more?" "should I call you 'Dad'? Because we are Partners, not parent/child, so telling me I CANT, well, that really makes me feel like a child and you are an adult...so by saying I can't- well, Im just going to HAVE to go get more now,......teenage rebellion, you know....."
not that I have done any of that of course..
He is NOT immune... he HAD to have the BRs from chicken stock...
He is afraid of the chickens getting sick and chicken poo. In the book I read it said the more space you have for the chickens to run durring the day the more you could keep in a coop at night. This book said for a 3'x3' coop you could put 2 dozen chickens in it... That is if they have plenty of room to roam in the day.
I would NEVER put 2 dozen chickens in my 3'x4' coop!! That just seems cruel, but my chickens do have plenty of room... So 11 might not be soooo bad...
A few roos will be dinner anyway... or rehomed
Anyone want a BR roo? He is ready to service some purdy ladies!!!!

If you are going to go that route... just salt everything... nothing will grow for a hundred years
