Well it's happened, I et my wife hatch some eggs, then 2 hens went broody. NO CHICK KEEPING was the agreement. long story short, That blond hatched out, and then I got that wanting look. You know that look. 5 chicks later, now I have to build on an addition for roosting space. It's only time, a little money, and some stain. But to see her smile when I said "I reckon you want that one" was priceless.
We gave the other 22 away. Did it for her, not the money for the chicks.
