    Any of you had a conversation like this?

    Me- I'm getting a couple chicks in the spring.

    Co-Worker- You know they grow up into not-so cute chickens, right?

    Me- They are to cute! And they give eggs, eat your leftovers, and keep the bugs down.

    Co-Worker- Hm. Maybe I should get chickens.

    Thankfully I have a guy I work with that has chickens too so I don't seem so weird. [​IMG]

    People at work think I am nuts. I have a very close close up of one of my 11 week olds on the screen. She is a ham and every time there is a camera she is sticking her neck out.

    Debiraymond, Love your pic!!!! Would look too cute on a tee shirt with the caption "Got Wadles?" (like the Got Milk ads......) and actually that was an idea from a co-worker. [​IMG]

    I tend to not mention the keeping the bugs down and fertilizing your grass part, etc because 1. I don't want someone to get chickens and not take care of them , which they'd probably do if they're getting them for those reasons. 2. because i don't think how people act like chickens and other animals are machines and they can just use them. Thats not right.

    So I tell people how cool chickens, ducks etc are like how intelligent they are and how much fun. My ducks are more companions than pets. (I cant speak from experience with chickens since i've never had any)

    My DD and I are both chicken nuts. I feel really sorry for DH and DS. Our dinner conversations go like this:

    DH: Boy, the Jones' addition is coming right along.
    DS: Yeah, their son said the whole family is doing the work.
    DH: Do you think we could ever do a project like that?
    DD: Yeah, if it was a coop!
    Me: Wow, we could make a coop with seperate banty and standard areas.
    DD: We could have breeding pens, too!
    DS: [​IMG]
    DH: :eek:
  10. Shhhhh, keep very quiet. I do not talk too much about my chickens. I have a disease ya know and I am suppose to be in denial and am a very ill person. Just wait until I get all those eggs in the spring, all those new chicks, all those.... shhhh, keep very queit.
