    It is tough to handle issues like this in a family setting. Old folks are pretty set in their ways and if your family looks at things like farming and animals as something beneath your station it may be to your benefit to lay low about it until you are independent and on your own. This is not something you should make a big deal out of as the response may be well above what you expect. Pick your battles and always, always wait until your strengths out weigh your weaknesses.

    It will be tough to lay low, but keep your mind in the long game. Or as my Colonel used to say winning wars always comes with a price.

    My family are much more comfortable with me bringing some of my chickens in the house for visiting if I put a chicken diaper on them. Some folks think chickens are disgusting and filthy and you may not be able to change that. Concentrate more on the joy and comfort your chickens give you than the negativity of others. Tell your family members when they give you a hard time, how happy and content your birds make you feel. Our families should want us to be happy.

    That is very sad for you, but if it's only temporary, don't worry! Just keep your head down like Jim said, and before you know it things will be back to how you like it. [​IMG] Good luck!

    Oh, that sounds really sad for you. Well, like Jim said, when you get older, you'll be able to have your chickens! I'm so sorry you can't have your pets now, but you will be able too one day. [​IMG]

    You know I am on your side and only want the best for you, so take this criticism to heart.

    You cannot write the above quote and have the expectation that anyone will take you seriously or even try to understand you. That sentence above is atrocious. When you write a post you may see a red squiggly line under some of the words you type. This means that those words are not words. Right click on them and it will give you suggestions as to what may be the correct word you were looking for. Select that word and it will change in your post.

    What you meant to say is this: " Thanks for the comforting words guys. It is really nice to read, because no one really understands me. "

    No matter what anyone tells you to your face, they will and do judge you upon your ability to speak and write correctly and coherently. It may not have consequences as a young person, but when you attain majority it will make your life so much harder to be successful and happy.
