    I need to know how to convince my mom that if i order chicks and ducklings in mid august, they will be big enough to survive the winter... Sooo... how do I convince her???

    Ps: I am able to keep them inside until they cannot fit in our brooder and our brooder is 2 huge storage tubs put together... so they would be almost full grown before I let them stay outside.

    Why not just wait 'til the spring?....

    I know that's the answer you didn't want to hear but why the big rush?

    Too bad you don't live in the south. I can have chicks just about anytime without a problem. [​IMG]

    Waiting until spring is like being pregnant waiting on your first baby. It takes forever and is full of pain! [​IMG]

    Good luck either way! [​IMG]

    maybe instead of convincing her, HONOR her. show how 'adult' you are about it. works wonders, and no matter what happens, you'll end up where you should be!

    best!
