    We went to our local co-op because I needed some complete feed for our horses. Of course, I had to walk over to the tanks with the chicks in them to see what they had there. While I was cooing and talking to the chicks, my husband walks up behind me, makes a disgusted sound and said,

    "don't you have enough of those things??"

    [​IMG], not really, but all the ones there had already been sold.

    Lucky him.

    Quote:As long as he doesnt install a A/C and a flatscreen TV in the coop its alright. [​IMG] I wish mine would be that supportive. I have to make the coop myself.

    You ladies have missed that there's a huge difference here between men and women and how they look at the chickens. We men have to see some utility to them. We love our big furry dogs, we can usually tolerate cats, but chickens are just too much. Now, you tell me that I get to eat the eggs, eat the chickens, and possibly turn a profit or at least break even through egg sales, all while also keeping my garden weed and bug free and you've got a winner. It's all about making us see that they have usefulness beyond being fun, cute, pretty, etc. Otherwise they're just a stinky, messy ball of useless feathers.

    Remember, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, with his wallet a close second. Frame your arguments that way and your chances of winning him over will increase exponentially.
