    I went to a different feed store today.
    Now taking orders for baby chicks...less than $2 each for pullets....
    2.25 for Ameraucanas.

    How long before he notices the cheeping....

    hmmmm... maybe a few guinea pigs strategically placed would sort of disguise the cheeping for a while... like till they lay eggs and he fully appreciates your forsight and thriftiness [​IMG]

    I think it will be blatantly obvious, unless he works nights like me........ If it does not appear right in front of my face it does not exist. Anyone who works nights will understand 12 hr shifts 2 on 3 off 3 on 2 off. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
