    I ordered eggs and plugged the bator in, and have a broody. My DH asked what I was doing, since I promised him I wouldn't buy anymore eggs. [​IMG]

    So I told him BYC had a contest and I won some eggs. He wants to know how many chickens is enough. Well, how many?

    Hmmmm, let's see. [​IMG] Have you reached 200 yet? If not, then that might be enough. Pick a number honey and make sure you have lots of growing room. [​IMG]

    Hubby and I made a deal a couple years back, I can have as many chickens as I want if I give him as many kids as he wants. :eek:

    I reached 90+ chickens this summer... now I am pregnant again! [​IMG]

    OMG Anne..you're in trouble. [​IMG] I would never make a compromise like that. But DH does get whatever gamebirds he wants and I get whatever chickens I want. That's our deal. And nobody discusses the cost of all this. [​IMG]
