My wife has been rolling her eyes at me ever since I told her my plans to raise chickens. But last night, I was doing my usual evening "research" on everything chicken and she IM'd me from the living room (how sad is that?) about an incubator. Notice the details...she was looking at chicken stuff on her own!! Anyways, she is starting to get more and more excited about the whole thing and looks forward to implementing it into our homeschool curriculum for our almost 6 year old little girl, Sara. Plus, my mom told me she has good memories of eating fresh eggs as a child. I plan on giving her some. Everyone else who looks at me funny....NO EGGS FOR YOU!!! Seems like everyone tries to discourage me because they smell SOOO BAD!! They try to tell me that they drive by chicken plants and it smells horrible. I try to reassure them that I know they don't smell like roses, but there's a big difference in a chicken plant and a small chicken set up like mine. I've just resigned myself to feeling sorry for them. I'll stop my ranting. Does everyone have this experience when first getting into it? Once I get my coop built out on the farm and prepare a welcome temporary home at the house, I plan on getting the Brown Egg Layers special from Murry McMurray. Sound like a plan?
