But they have baby chicks in! To top it off, husband has requested I go alone so that he can start our bathroom remodel. Seriously? Doesn't he know how weak I am around little peepers, and how empty my brooder is right now? I TOLD him they have chicks. Is that some sort of weird passive aggressive yes on his part? LOL We've been together 11 years, he should know exactly what to expect from me. I'll come home with 5, and a by-the-way.... "Honey, I need another run added to the coop here in a couple weeks". If I go with him, here's the shopping list... 3 bags layer crumbles 2 bales of shavings 1 gallon waterer for the "grown" chicks out there to get them off their chick waterer. 2 bags of dog food since the dogs are on hunger strike with a similar recipe to what I bought at Petsmart. For some reason my 100 pound beasts like the tiny bite kibbles over the large chunk Lamb & Rice. Who knew? They were eating the large chunk fine until the store ran out and I got the mini chunks. Now they want the mini stuff. Same ingredients! Amended shopping list if I go alone.... 1 light bulb, the light bulb for the heat lamp went out on the exact day I decided to put them outside. Great timing! 1 bag chick starter 5 pullet babies, different breeds, paying close attention to gender if I can on the breeds they have. And if I buy chicks, I'll have to add a stop home to drop them off before doing the rest of my errands.
