    I just love little fuzzy butts... congrats!

    now that spring is coming my new mantra is "I will NOT get more chicks, I will NOT get more chicks".... I already have 3 coops and I don't think the DH will understand if I start building a 4th... [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new babies! Enjoy them while you can! Seems like they hot the gangly awkward stage all too soon before they turn into handsome adults!

    You'd better send someone else to the feed store, then...one look at those bins of little fuzzy butts and you're doomed...[​IMG] I'm already worried because we have to go back to the feed store tomorrow after work. My daughter had her heart set on a Silver Laced Wyandotte...and the store sold out...but they are getting more, tomorrow! So we are picking out one chick tomorrow. But...if we are getting a Silver, shouldn't we also get a Gold? Because the store is getting those tomorrow, too!! Uh oh...chicken math strikes again!!

    Oh I remember that stage from last year! Seemed like suddenly nobody was saying "aren't they cute" anymore! Poor babies! But they all turned out beautiful...except we did have one that turned out handsome [​IMG] so we had to find a new home for him. Hoping this year we have all girls!! [​IMG]

    Well, it won't be my fault if someone (or two, or three) go broody and I don't notice 'right away"..[​IMG]

    Of course it wouldn't be your fault! So easy to miss! I can see your innocence shining through, all the way over here on the east coast [​IMG]

    Well, my DH did score another shipping crate at work and bring it home. It must be a sign that he expects me to make use of it. After all, it would be a shame to have it just sitting around, taking up space and going unused.

    Absolutely. Building chicken coops out of shipping crates is a public service. Your husband is lucky to have you [​IMG]

    Ya, know... I keep telling him that. How many guys can get by with getting their wife a gift from Home Depot, Sears, Lowes and Harbor Freight and Not be in trouble. LOL... I have more power tools than he does. In the last 4 years I've built 3 small 'decks/landings', two large decks, a pump house, a storage shed, 2 chicken houses and revamped a playhouse. I had to have a little help man-handling the siding and sheets of osb and plywood. But with a little help from the dh, my sis and the occasional grandson, i got the jobs done (patting myself on the back). Not bad for an "over 50" woman with very minimal power tool skills (power drill only). and much Much more satisfying than housework.
