UGH, I am soo annoyed right now! So DH an I have moved a lot in the last year, but we are finally settled, and we want chickens again. But I'm getting really tired of people telling me that because I am 6 months pregnant, I shouldn't have chickens, that I will be too busy to keep up with them once the baby is here. My MIL just told me I won't have time for chickens once the baby is here, I told her that there are people here on BYC that have chickens at the same time as having a baby/Family, why does she assume I can't handle it? Yah for about 2 weeks after the baby is born I will need help from DH to care for the chickens, but then I will be back and ready to go. She just gave me a condescending laugh, and said you just wait. I then said why can't I put the baby in a carrier or in his bouncer next to me while I tend to the chickens? Then her mother (Dh's Grandmother) chimes in with "well what are you gonna do when the baby starts crying?" Um the same thing I would do if he started crying while I'm doing the dishes, tend to him, then go back to what I was doing, Then she says "what are you going to do if you need to nurse him?", Well I'm gonna nurse him, HECK they even have carries that make it so you can nurse hands free, it's not like 54 years ago, the last time you had a baby! I'm getting really annoyed at people who think liking chickens is Dumb, I don't make her feel stupid for loving her Horses. So tell me, am I stupid for thinking I can have a baby and maybe 10 chickens at the same time?
