    My son just sat down and said "Mom,, while you're getting eggs for class, could you get some for me? I want to enter chickens this year along with the ducks".......
    Guess that coop just got bigger!

    I don't know how old your son is but I think it's great when kids have a hobby, keeps them off of the street. Good for him and you! [​IMG]

    It's great to share a hobby with your kids.
    All three of my kids (15, 12, 6) have at least one breed of chicken, and it gives us something in common and gives us something to do together, especially as they get older and want nothing to do with their parents.

    My son is 16, he's very mature and not at all like a lot of teens are these days. He knows I'll support him in it, but he's got to do his share, and I know he will!

    Thats what people say about me, I'm not like other teens. I don't like going to parties and things, people say I'm very mature for a teen.
