NOT!! Mr. horsewishr was not excited about getting chickens this spring, and emphatically told me that he would NOT be taking care of them. So far I've caught him standing by the coop "talking" to them (in their own language), collecting Japanese beetles to feed them, and picking them up to show them where the good bugs are. He's now saying he doesn't know if he can even eat chicken anymore. I got home from work last night around midnight. There was a note on my keyboard: "All the chickens are roosting!" (which is news, because they generally sleep on the floor). He signed "Love, Chicken Daddy." Of course he continues to remind me, almost daily, that he doesn't like chickens.
