    Anyone have any ideas about convincing dh to buy 3 silies and build a coop for them for my birthday?? I REALLY want some silkies but don't want to intergrate to the flock. [​IMG]

    Hmmm....silkies are bantams, which means they might get hurt being with bigger birds. Thus, they'll have to come in the house to be protected (or even worse, treated for injuries!). Therefore, it is in DHs best interest to build a coop for the silkies or else clear a spot in the house for them.

    [​IMG] Does that work? I am totally being a dooms-day'er to help your cause. I personally have seen a mixed flock with BRs, Leghorns, Ameraucanas and a silky (and all is well!).

    I have been "asking" for a real coop to replace the tractor for months. No results. Tomorrow I start dumpster diving myself for the lumber; when the pile in the garage gets big enough for a coop, DH can't park his precious in there. Guess how fast he'll build that coop then! He hates a frosty car. That's my plan anyway! If I have to do it myself, this will entail weeks of crockpot dinners, no ironing of shirts, etc., because I'm spending my spare time doing that-which-you-could've-helped-with.

    Anyways, I think I am the better construction person in the house, IMHO.

    Another justification: always need a backup for quarantine.

    For insomnia, GET OFF the computer. Drink some hot water with lemon, or some valerian tea and/or take a warm shower/bath. Been there. It's amazing what is on tv at 4am. That's after I've looked at every single post on BYC

    My birthday is the day before halloween. So far, so good....dh isn't saying yes, but he's not saying no either and with one of the presents he ordered for me not showing as shipped yet....[​IMG]
    If I got 3, it wouldn't have to be a big coop, just a little one.....and they are SO stinkin' cute!![​IMG]
