    Quote:wow. that is brave! in that case, i'll take 2-3.

    wait, did i just agree to take chicks without even asking how much you wanted for them? [​IMG] where is my self control? why don't you bring however many you have left and we'll go from there. i guess i'll need some to keep that little cochin company...

    eta: georgia, do you have pics of the parents of that little cochin? i've never seen one in person so i'd like to get a better idea what it'll look like.

    I'm not asking much, as I really need to clear out some chicks.
    I have the partridge Silkies (currently 12) and also lavender d'Uccles (9).
    But there is also a buyer coming by tomorrow for some of the Silkies. I know they are only looking at getting 2-3 chicks though.

    I have to work full-time next week, so I have to bring easy stuff. How about some rolls & lunchmeats?
    Also, DH is trying to think of an errand he needs to run on Saturday [​IMG] He may not make it to the picnic...
     
  2. Quote:hmmmm. i want to say yes... but i don't know. i'm putting my little silkie roo in with my injured hen because the big boys have decided that they don't like him in the yard with them (weird, since they've been together since birth). i was planning to put the mf cochin and the silkies i'm probably getting from wegotchickens in there when they were big enough since Madeline (the injured hen) does fine around bantams. 2 roos with 2 bantam hens and an injured LF hen (dislocated knee that has never healed)? does that sound like a recipe for disaster?

    Quote:rolls and lunchmeats sound fine to me. does your husband like to fish? tell him there is a nice big lake full of fish that he can hide out on the whole time if he wants. [​IMG]

    He can hide out with my husband. He doesn't understand chickens addiction either.

    I'd say that yes that sounds like it could be a disaster, lol! It's up to you though!


    My DH and I'm sure my boys will bring fishing rods so I'm sure there will be some quality guy time by the lake [​IMG]

    sounds good to me! If you decide later on that you don't want him (if he is a him) I could always take him back. [​IMG]

    DH may actually have a legit errand to run.

    DD is desperately trying to arrange an excuse for not going as well. Why are teens of today so totally afraid of a little sunlight? [​IMG]

    Your daughter is probably afraid of another sticky note on her back. Your hubby's going to be sorry he missed my great potato salad.

    BB, Gary wants to know if he gets to keep any fish he catches. LOL

    If someone's bringing sandwich meats, we'll take care of the bread and condiments....any food issues we need to watch out for (gluten probs, etc.)?
