    I am so amused right now! We've had to resort to store bought eggs until one of our three suppliers has eggs they can sell/give away again. Last night, when deciding what to have for supper, I suggested eggs and hashbrowns. My husband said, "No, let's not do that. The last time I made eggs they tasted horrible! I always thought an egg was an egg, but those store bought ones are only good for baking!"

    So, is this the first battle won to getting me some chickens? I certainly hope so![​IMG]

    Just start with a non-threatening number of birds, like three... Get him hooked... Just tell him chickens need, you know, eight square feet of floorspace per bird instead of four when you build your coop (so you have room for more later [​IMG] ). Just kidding!

    I hope you can get some chickens this spring!

    Buy four just in case one doesnt make it. Then you can bring 2-3 of those oh so cute ones home that you just had to have.Or if you want to hatch them yourself use my math. If i want five pullets i need 20 eggs, because only 50% hatch and half of them are females...
