    Hi all,

    I've finally convinced my hubby (who still thinks I'm a little crazy) to get some chickens. Now for the coup(s).

    I'm thinking about doing a tractor for the majority of the year and doing a separate insulated winter coup stashed under my deck.

    I'm going to start small, I'm thinking 3 pullets [​IMG] I found a nice lady whose going to hatch some black sex-links the end of April, so I think I'll go that route even though I was thinking of orpingtons.

    Glad to be here!

    [​IMG] Hubby thinks your crazy. We just had this talk

    ME: (about a year ago) I'm going to get chickens Im not spending $3 a dz eggs

    Hubby: Dont get me involved in your hairbrain idea

    Me: (about 5 weeks ago) Im getting a incubator

    Hubby: what do you need that for if your only replacing 8 birds

    Me: Just because I want it and dont worry Ill rehome the roosters and only keep a few birds

    Hubby: better hurry up and find some eggs [​IMG]

    7 hatch out of 9

    order a dzn more eggs and the day before they are shipped ...

    Hubby: you should have ordered 2 dzn [​IMG]

    this weekend I find a ad on craigslist a man has all kinds of chicks so we are deciding what to get and..

    Hubby: you know you have to decide which ones you want as he scans the mcmurry book for examples and he makes a list of 8 birds

    Hubby: you can only get 6

    Me: OK I will only get one Brahma instead of 2 and we dont need the red star since there the same as my comets

    Hubby: We better get 2 brahmas [​IMG]

    Me: you know you keep trying to make it all out to be me but you always want them as much as I do, you just want to blame me when we have too many and you want to say I told you

    Hubby: laughs that kinda darn she knows me so well giggle [​IMG]

    So dont worry hubby will join you in your madness lol

    Coming soon we have a Speckled Sussex and 2 Self Blue DUccle banties. [​IMG] All of which already have names.
