    I'm just outside Clarkston.

    So I've been stalking the forums and reading everything I could. We purchased our house and I've dragged the husband unwillingly into being a chicken keeper. Chicken MATH on my first day. He thought 3 was a good number, I thought 10 was better. Good thing he was at work today, I came home with 6 silkies and 2 polish chicks.

    How do you get a former Navy builder interested in chickens? Get him looking at coops...and all the different idea everyone has. BINGO!

    Welcome to BYC. I'm retired Navy too... give him a hammer, some nails, plenty of wood and you supervise him building your dream coop!

    [​IMG] from the Thumb! [​IMG] Sounds like you've been "researching" the forum quite a bit...you're already really good at luring your husband into your addiction. [​IMG] There's plenty of enablers here who can help you out should you need assistance with the art of persuasion. [​IMG]
