Here's why I get upset: NOV 2009, Dave and I drive down to Columbus to the Ohio National poultry show. He decides he wants to pick out some chickens for himself. He picks out these two NHR hens, and I get a pair of Ameraucanas. He never takes care of them or helps out with feeding or cleaning or watering. NOV 2010, Dave and I go to the Ohio National again. He picks out nine modern game bantams. NINE! My plan that year, was to close down the baby coop, and put everybody in the big hen house so that I only have to care for one coop for the winter. BUT NO! He has to have these little bantams. They lay eggs the size of a pigeon. I'm angry because I had to trudge out there in the snow and wind and I had twice the work....Feeding Watering.......Because he doesn't do any of it. Finally, he decides he's not caring for them anyway, so he tells me to go ahead and sell them. I sell them. In the fall of 2011, I downsize and re-home half of my flock. Keep in mind, Dave isn't helping. I sell my Buckeye trio along with some other hens. He gets bent out of shape because he liked the Buckeye trio. I feel bad. I buy him a new trio at the 2012 Ohio National as a surprise. So now it's going to be spring in a few months, and I decide to keep the Buckeye trio (which he never takes care of), and I'll put them in the small A-frame, but I want to go all bantam, so I want to sell out on the large fowl. I tell him this, and he says, "Whatever you want, it's your hobby" but he acts all sad and fussy...... So he offers to build me another coop, so I can keep the bantams I've just hatched a month ago. That is not what I want! I want less work! This is my hobby and he intereferes yet again! If he helped too, I would understand, but he DOESN"T. I do have to give him credit, he built my covered run. Then he put electricity to my coops but he doesn't listen to my needs. I didn't want electricity to the small coop, because I can move it around. The heavy duty, outdoor extension cord is perfect for winter lighting! BUT NO! Now he has installed underground electric, so I can't move the coop. And a tree from our woods fell down and missed the coop by TWO INCHES last week! It's just not in a safe spot! I feel guilty, so I let him do what he want's but it's just not fair!
