My DH is very allergic to wheat. He felt that he was reacting from the layer pellets I was using, so a couple of months ago we came up with a custom mash based on the Fertrell formula. The birds are doing well on it. The problem is that it is a pain in the butt to make. Every time we start running low, I very nicely tell him that it is time to mix another batch. Three days later when we are almost out, I tell him again. Then the feed runs out and I have to make it myself! I've done that twice and I will NOT do it again. Am I being unreasonable in insisting that he take responsibility for mixing the feed? I do ALL of the other chicken chores, every day. The only thing he does is collect eggs when he's hungry! I can't even get him to close the pop door at night... often I don't get home until 9pm! The thing that kills me is that it was his idea to get chickens. I was opposed to it, but of course I loved them from the first peep. If it were up to me, we would be feeding nice, convenient, pellets. But no... he won't tolerate having wheat around even though I kept it in a bin OUTSIDE and washed my hands with the hose before coming back in the house so as not to contaminate the doorknobs, etc. I can't believe that we actually fight about this!
