So, we've got 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, five hens, 3 ducks and 9 blue barred rock eggs in the bator due to hatch this Friday. All that in addition to an 8 year old daughter and a 16 year old Danish exchange student. Not so bad you say? Here's the straw that just might break the camel's back: My husband went on hotline (our buy, sell, trade radio show) today to see if anyone had any medicated chick starter they wanted to sell b/c our feed store is out and we need it for the soon to hatch chicks. No one had chick starter but a lady called who's house we had just happened to drive past over the weekend. I think she just wanted to talk birds. Anyway, we had been wondering who she was b/c she had geese, chickens, turkeys, etc. She and DH got to talking and turns out she's looking to give away 2 of the geese - african browns (?). And I'm actually considering taking them!!! DH wasn't even going to tell me - too bad he's such an honest guy! But winter is here and I don't have housing for them, although I'm sure something could be put together. I wonder, since they are already around tons of other birds, if they would get along with the chickens and ducks. Someone stop me! Tell me I'm crazy!
