    Back when we started with chickens we lived in a cute home on a very small lot downtown. We planned on having two or three good laying hens and really two or three was all we COULD have.

    My boyfriends mother owns two homes- His childhood home and a double wide out in the sticks which she lives in. When my boyfriend found out she was selling his childhood home he decided that we needed to save it since its only five years from being paid off.

    well this house has a massive backyard. And now chicken math is OUT OF CONTROL!

    my two chickens? Now almost thirty! [​IMG]

    And you know, hes such a good sport. Last night we were out with friends and they were giving us stinkface asking how many chickens i have acquired.... imagine their shock when i told them how my flock had grown!
    Well they asked him how he felt about it, and I fully expected him to shake his head and give some kind of "she does what she wants" comment. (especially since I just received 14 chickens from ideal without consulting him to add to our flock of 13...)

    But no! Instead he smiled and said, "I dont mind, I really like the chickens."

    I love him! Now there is REALLY no stopping me! [​IMG]

    and here are some pics of the new babies...

    I started with a simple flock of TSC chicks in March (6 birds) and today I have 23 + or minus (had a few die recently) and 25 eggs with only 5 days left in the incubator. My husband is not as pleased with me as yours. >> And I live in a residential area. [​IMG]
