And what they heck are you doing posting at 0515 the morning after your wedding?????
No, I was good...he's actually the one who teared up at the ceremony. And as to being up at that godawful hour? Being a good wife of course. He gets up that early to get ready for work. I couldn't very well let him make his own breakfast the first day of our marriage. So I got up and made him Fried eggs and English Muffins. Waited while he got showered and out the door, and then I went back to bed!

Chicken math: "Hunny, I think we should have chickens, we go through so many eggs with the kids here"
I think 6-8 hens will be more than enough" He responds by giving you a Kindle...and then regrets it when you do research. After doing your research, you settle on 11 breeds that you must have, and he comments on how pretty silver sebrights are. You of course realize that they're not practical, so you discount that idea. You have now decided that you must have 3 of each breed, because you are after all getting straight run, and with your luck (and you will be proven right) you will end up with some (did I say some, try lots) of roosters, and some of course will die/be taken by hawks, etc. So now you've agreed to 3x11=33. (doesn't look much like 6-8 does it?) THEN you go to a chicken seminar, and there happens to be a local breeder of silver sebrights...and he's giving some of the roos away...for free! You talk to him, and give him your number....and about 3 hours later, he tells you to come pick up a trio. Now 33+3=36. The summer goes on, and someone posts free ducks on craigslist, and you call and tell them you'll take 2 of the 6....they call back and beg you to take all 6. You do...but these ducks are stupid...and fly into the field to sleep at night....owls love stupid ducks. 1 lone duck remains. You decide you want to incubate the tiny sebright eggs, and some lovely person on here agrees to do it for you. Out of 10 eggs...only 2 make it. So they feel bad and bring you the 2 tiny ones, 1 Salmon Favorelle chick and 5 ducks. THAT is chicken/duck/turkey/gamebird/guinea/quail math. None of us seem to figure out subtraction or division though.
