    I bet husband will fall in love with the chicks before you get home from travel and you won't have to do much convincing to keep chicks inside until spring. [​IMG]

    I have 2 of those "home grown" cuties in my pottery studio-
    I named them Olivia and Angelina-
    Turns out they are Oliver and Angelo! Oops.
    I think the christmas bow idea is a good one-For some reason my husband wants them out in the coop. They are starting to crow and he can hear them when he is in the office.....
