    Ok, my husband who previously had no intrest in the chickens, is fallin' in love with them..... all of them! We have 3 RIR roos' that have never been apart, my DH will spend lots of time in the backyard with the "boys" tryin' to catch them, give them treats etc... he has convinced himself (not me) that we need to keep all 3 boys! Could I put the 3 in a bachlor pad together without having to worry about them killing one another? (maybe I'll make it large enough to put my Husband in their with them!) Him culling them for food is outta the question! We could never eat "Fluffy" I could do it myself, then tell him I found them a new home... and BTW we're having fried chicken tonight!

    I think a bachelor pad is a great idea!

    I don't have one, so I don't actually know how it would work out. But it seems to me that if they were raised together, you'd have a pretty good chance of a favorable outcome.

    Oh, and congrats on your hubby loving the chickens! Mine does too, and I'm forever grateful for that. I bought him a duck for Father's Day. A duck that I wanted.... [​IMG]
