The good news is he was out at TSC to get materials for yet another coop (grow out pen).
He's also aware of the soon to be coming turkeys but I think he believes that all of them will be going to Camp Kenmore this fall. Depends on how many I hatch. Muwahahahaaaa. *rubs hands together maniacally*
I would laugh my butt off if DH came home with chicks because the chickens at home needed buddies. I still have to explain the extra incubator to him before he gets home next weekend. I really don't think I am going to be able to clear out enough eggs to get it empty before the hatch.
I hatched all six eggs that Denny sent me last year. We ate two, one had to be put down because of a bad leg (I think she hurt it jumping down off something) and lost one tom to a coyote (that is when I did the hack job on Lurkey's feathers, if anyone is going to eat my birds it is going to be me). We kept the last two for eggs this spring. Now I also will have to explain the additional turkey eggs that I am getting from thebirdguy to DH. He knows how many I have now and how many I am sending you and I know he can do simple math sooooooooooooo I will have to tell him about the extras.
ETA - oooooooooooor maybe I could tell him that Lurkey went into this CRAZY egg laying FRENZY. That might work until the poults hatch. They are going to be different colors. OOOOOOOOOOOOOh even better, maybe I could sell him on a wild turkey tom getting in an mating with her.
