    I hope my wife doesn't go thru our credit card purchases cuz she might ask for a divorce. I ordered 35 chicks from Ideal Poultry and another 20 from Purely Poultry. I ordered White Leghorns, Ameraucanas, Barnevelders, and Kraienkoppes from Ideal, then I browsed Purely Poultry and found a deal I couldn't let go so I ordered another 20 Black Copper Marans.

    If she looks at the credit card bill simply say, "You ruined your surprise! I bought you 75 chickens for your Valentine's Day present!"

    (PS, I wish I was brave enough to buy 75 chickens without my wife's permission....)

    Much better than the wrecked army ambulance my hubby bought at auction to 'fix it up' many years ago. Instead of us taking a nice trip. It wasn't a good scene!!! These birds will be wonderful; keep telling her that! And we are still married. [​IMG] Mary

    I'll add that you are now in a weak position regarding anything she may decide to bring home.... Mary

    LOL, I am keeping the cost of my coop to myself, 75 chicks are cheap in comparison. Thousands....... I have decided to call it the barn instead, it just seems reasonable considering the cost.
