    I have been "getting onto" my husband lately because he wants to keep the "pretty roosters" from every hatch we have...stupid him, huh? Ha ha ha ha h...h....hu...hmmm. *sigh*

    Here's my problem. We have a group of chicks, about 10 weeks old. The breeds are, EE (pullet), mutt (pullet), RIR (roo), and 2 BOs (pullet and roo). Here's what my plan WAS: come springtime 2011 we were going to focus on two breeds and two breeds only: Barred Rocks and Buff Orpingtons. Errr, hmmm.....and then I fell in love. I fell in love with....Stewie. The RIR roo. Hear me out: he is so sweet and red, and red is simply my FAVORITE color! He is also the absolute friendliest chick I have ever seen! He follows me around, he sits in my lap, he seems to genuinely love me! [​IMG] forgive me for my inability to fight this feeling!

    UPDATE!!!!

    While typing this thread I gave my husband the "doe eyes" when he asked what I was doing and explained my stance on Stewie's fate. He was not impressed. However, being the on the spot arguer I am, I had a flash of inspiration! I always use the tactic of profit for my reasons with my husband...responsibility is a close second. I asked him, wouldn't it be responsible and profitable to cross little Stewie (RIR) and some BR ladies and create (drum roll please).............................................................................sex links!!!

    He fell for it...and the hypocrisy wins again. [​IMG]

    That's great! [​IMG] I love it when I can find a way to rationalize and justify something I want, even when it's something I'v given my husband a hard time about. Good thinking!!

    Mine doesn't care as long as they are at the barn. Although he does admit as chicks they are cute!
    Mow to find some call ducks!
