    We went on vacation to visit my sister who just had twins. We had to have someone to take care of the chickens, so we loaded them up along with their tractor and took them over to my in-laws. Now we have been back for 2 weeks, and my mother in law won't give them back!! They have fallen in love with my chickens (understandably so) and have gone into extreme spoiling mode. Actually, at this point they are more spoiled than any of the grandkids. *Sigh* So what to do now.... get more babies and start over (hubby will have to build another tractor) or steal them back (and break their hearts)?? Dang chickens and their overly adorableness!

    Another risk of keeping chickens!

    Cute story and title.

    You must start over now.

    For the sake of family harmony I would start over. What a great situation to be in.. chicken shopping with permission [​IMG] What's one more tractor amongst family? It's all for a good cause. [​IMG]

    I would let them keep the tractor and the chicks and then build yourself a bigger tractor and increase your flock. Any excuse to get more chicks! [​IMG]
