    This morning, as my husband and I were discussing the hummingbird and when the eggs might hatch... I said "This is probably as close as I will ever get to having chickens!"

    He said... "And who would watch these chickens if we ever went away for vacation?"

    I told him my neighbor Pam said she would be happy to come feed them for me...

    A tiny step closer....[​IMG]

    Oh yes, chickens are so much fun to have! Keeping my fingers crossed for you. And 3 or 4 is a great number to start with. [​IMG]

    Keep working on him. I have fully indoctrinated my husband. Last week I was trying to decide if I should buy a few more and he said, "You can't get too many chickens!".

    Cool! Maybe you can entice one to "follow you home" sometime soon. Or better yet, five or six.

    You know what turned my family around? Not knowing what to expect, we watched a video about factory farms. I never knew what these animals went through to be on my dinner table. Especially the chickens. Anyway, I vowed to never eat any meat I didn't rear myself. That goes for milk, eggs, and anything else that came out of a factory farm. Pretty much, I eat nothing packaged. So, the easiest way to start my new life was to go and buy me some fine hens. Now, I must get more. I love them so much. Talk about entertainment. It's funny because one of my dear friends became so jealous and got herself 5 hens to start. Now if I can just figure out how to raise my own milk.

    Keep working on him. My husband is very supportive. I still work and he doesn't so he does most of the acutal work involved. He made me a ginormous pen last weekend. He also encouraged me to add to the 6 I had so I ordered 9 more. Just be positive.
