    I was all excited to go to the swap tomorrow(in Hudsonville). Just to look. [​IMG] Then DH saw me putting carriers in the mini-van...just in case. He told me he doesn't think we should go! I could alway take my FIL he loves chickens as much as me. Besides I am just going to look.......I am sure I won't get any new ones....maybe....[​IMG] What is a girl to do?

    Go to the swap. Can't hurt anything and being prepared for any emergancy (chicken playing in highway, it could happen) is just common sense. And remember in any divorce the judge is sure to give you the chickens. Oh take the FIL he will back ya on any story and the hubby will have to believe him. LOL. If ya go have fun.
