    I've been meaning to tell DH about the 4 turkey eggs in the incubator along with the chicken eggs. [​IMG] I tried to start a conversation about the Merriam turkeys tonight and he said "you've got plenty of chickens hatching..."

    Yeah, and possibly 4 turkeys. [​IMG] Wonder if he'll notice the hatch date on the calendar? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's that chicken math thing. I am having 5 roos and a turkey going to freezer camp. We did discuss turkeys earlier and I mentioned I wanted more because they were so cool. He likes the turkey. [​IMG] Never mind I have 6 EEs, 4 BBS and 12 BCMs in the incubator as well...[​IMG]

    I kinda did the same thing with my DH. My last hatch didnt make it cause shipping was too rough on them so my DD and I went to a farm near here and got some hatching eggs. Hubby didnt know what we were doing as he said we have enough chickens. So when I got home I told him I got a dozen eggs from an Amish grocery store. Needless to say he figured it out when I put 2 dozen in. He didnt really say anyting and now that they are developing and moving he thinks it cool. He did say if they all hacth I have to sell some. Hummm we'll see... [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah, I'm thinking. We just got a free llama (I llobbied for the llama [​IMG]) and already he's warming up to the idea of a second llama. [​IMG]

    The good news is they're hatching on the second day of opening season for deer/elk. We'll be so tired, he probably won't even notice the little fuzz butts! [​IMG]

    Quote:Well, my DH caught me in an egg buy. He called up as I was waiting for my friend to bring me the marans eggs. I felt like it was an undercover deal or something because I meet people in parking lots by supermarkets or gas stations. [​IMG] He took it all in stride and we joked about it. So, I think he'll be fine with the turkeys, assuming they hatch. I think he had visions of me ordering a flock of turkeys from a hatchery. [​IMG] I think he saw me turn the eggs in the incubator, so he knows I have quite a few.

    Quote:It's really funny how us pet people end up getting the animals we want. [​IMG]

    Husband said 2 dogs. We went from 1 to 4 to eventually a sled team with 25 dogs in the kennel at any one time. We're back down to 4 dogs.

    Husband said 1 cat. A second cat adopted us and he had me bring the cat inside. We have two cats.

    Husband said no chickens. Then 6 chickens. Then we have 23 chickens, 4 chicks, 2 ducks, 2 geese and a turkey. DH finds the chickens useful.

    Someone offered us a packing llama. I looked at DH who said we'd look at him. Sid is now outside in his pen and we're considering getting another llama and some horses.

    Methinks he protests a little too much. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I brought a gosling home when i was a teenager, i already had a couple of ducks, and just told everyone it was a duck too... Then it got bigger and started to look a bit different. So i told everyone it was a rare breed. When they finally clued on it was too late and they all loved him anyway [​IMG]
    or the never fail trick i use to do to my ex, what new *insert random pet here*? I've had them for weeks! We discussed this!
    It was mean, but he just accepted it after a while lol
