    Hello to all I am a new hen to 4 Cochins 1 is 2 weeks, 1 is a bantam named turtle, a hen named Charlotte and a Roo named "Blake Shelton". They came into my life over a month ago. That night my 5 lady leghorns that were 4 months old that I had raised from a day old where murdered by a fox and her pups. My heart way broken. So I have been keeping my babies in my house at night and taking them out every morning and outing them In a secure area in my front yard to keep check on them. My husband refuses to help me build a coop because I didn't ask his permission HA HA HA.... Anyway I am hoping to get what I want to have my l Cochins happy and safe and also get som hens for laying that I will not share with him. Fingers crossed.... Winning lottery numbers [​IMG] Most importantly encouragement from my fellow chicken friends [​IMG]

    In the olden days I would have suggested you repay your husband by putting (a lot of) starch in his personal laundry. But I don't know if they even sell starch anymore. LOL.

    I am guessing he doesn't want to partake in delicious fresh farm eggs either. So you probably she eat them in front of him and make lots of loud, "yummy" noises.

    Actually most spouses eventually come over to the chicken side. So don't rule him out yet. Welcome to Backyard chickens, so glad you joined us.

    My husband came around! To the point where he will ask, where is Mable? Then he sees her, or another that he has asked about. Comes in the house and tells me what one of the chickens was doing.
    He will also ask, when he knows it's time for chicks to hatch...any pips yet? [​IMG]
