I have never accused my husband of being the reason we ended up with more animals than planned, but Sunday night he was definitely the reason we ended up with more than expected. Yesterday was his birthday and he has always wanted some of the mallards TSC sells, so last week I brought home 2 of them as a surprise. That was supposed to be it, no more ducks! But Sunday we happened to be in town so I wanted to go back to TSC to see what they had for banties. All they had were 3 lone ducks and 10 banties. So I get a box and am planing on picking out the 6 I wanted to take home, when I look up and DH has also grabbed a box and is putting the 3 ducks in it! He said, "we can't leave then here all alone!" Grrrr...i said fine. Then as I finish picking out my chicks he says,"You can't just leave those 4 here all by themselves!" Geesh...where did this behavior come from?! So I came home with an extra 3 ducks and 4 chicks, don't tell him I'm thrilled about his attitude, he might quit helping clean the duck brooder out!
