Our feed store is getting chicks any day. Went in there night before last and they have everything set up. I told DH and now (jokingly of course) he has forbid me to go in there til the chicks are gone. It couldnt be because I have 17 chicks in the brooder and 10 more in the incubator not to mention 6 duck eggs in there too. Well I really want some bantam buff cochins, not even sure if they will have them. Do you think I could sneak a few in the brooder without him knowing? He is not usually very observant about the chickies. besides that once they are here what can he do.You know thats what I will do... Im a little stinker, and I'll just give him the puppy dog look and he'll crumble.
