    I ordered 4 frizzles. Well, they are one week old today. One looks like he/she will not be a frizzle. And one doesn't look so hot which is my son's favorite. I want to go get two more, and he's put his foot down...GRRR... I'm trying to get a hold of the store to see if they sell probiotics, I might have to go down there and get ONE more chich that will hop into my box [​IMG]. I'll tell him that was a compromise, and he better be fine with it!! [​IMG]

    Do like I did at first (now she is all about it) I told the wife they were packing peanuts you know the extra chicks they put in to keep the other warm. she bought it the first time then she got into them and went with me to pick some out and asked why they didn't give us any extras this time "Umm well you see honey they didn't exactly give them to me the last time" lol.

    You could always try that and see if it works for you...

    Good luck to you

    The first year I got chickens I made the mistake of discussing it with my husband. Even though he has absolutely nothing to do with them, doesn't even have to see them unless he makes a point of it, he felt he should have some control over what and how many I got. Since then I just order them and don't tell him. This year got a little sticky because I ordered a LOT of birds (chicks, turkeys, geese and ducks) and they came in several different batches. So he kept getting awakened in the early morning with the phone calls from the post office. Finally he asked me, "how many did you get?" So I had to lie, just a little.

    I hope you all who are deceiving your spouses like this will be so understanding when they return the favor with something they want.
