What started out as the yearly visit to TSC to visit the "chick days" soon became an adventure when I brought home our own starter flock. My DHs reaction was "you bought SIX chickens?!?". Which I had a very good explanation - there was a minimum, I had to buy AT LEAST 6. Then I had to break the news to him that I wanted VARIETY, which was completed with my online order of 11 wonderful various breeds (barred rocks, wyandots, polish, light brahma, golden comets). DH just rolled his eyes.
