    How will I convince the dh that these birds are required. It's to help those Aussie fire victems, but do I really need hatching eggs.

    So folks, help me with some excuses if I should win.

    My first one is: I need them for a hatching project for the second graders.

    I thought of another excuse

    I need to test that craiglist incubator I bought. It must work better than the homemade one.

    Tell him you need to find out which came first, the chicken or the egg. (and why don't he go golfing or something and quit bugging you.)

    LOL sounds like when I received a box of turkey eggs, marked 'turkey' on the outside. There was no hiding that one. DH was mad! He didn't want turkeys, it wasn't fair that I got them anyway, ignoring him questioned his masculinity etc etc I told him i'd just throw them out then. He caved, told me I may as well incubate them now I had them. Every single one developed! Now he loves watching the turkeys, as do the other cowboys. Apparently turkeys are cool, chickens are not [​IMG]

    Y'all could help me by outbidding me. The money goes for a good cause. I thought of another excuse, since they are silkie eggs....

    Butterscotch is lonely when Silk Baby is broody, he needs another girl.

    I think the school excuse is the best excuse. Then you can write off the purchase in your taxes as school supplies, plus it would be an awesome learning experience for the kids.
