    My wife now hates chickens... She is a day sleeper and has a hard time with the constant crowing.

    And she is always checking the incubator... not to help me... but to make sure I didn't add more eggs lol. When she does find more eggs/chicks/chickens, I always tell her "but I got them for you"

    I sleep on the couch a lot. lol

    well buddy you ain't doing something right! Lol
    My wife truly does help a lot. I have I think 94 birds. Lol not counting chicks.
    Helps me dub, feeds, water and helps me take them on and off tIe cords. Collects eggs, and helps me move pens around too. Now that I think about it I'm not sure I could do it all by myself. Nevermind yes I can but she makes it a lot easier and fun instead of all work.

    Spent a little over $60 in feed for two weeks and sold $107 in eggs. Small profit but it's there if you don't count time spent. Lol
    That's right I'm an egg peddler!

    Yesterday honestly was utterly horrible. Ended up going home at about 9am from work to find pretty much everything under water almost had to Jack up the wife's car. All the chickens were up on roosts or nest boxes. Ended up being water everywhere I was helpless reminded me a great deal of 1995 when I sold out the first time. Heres a pic of my cameras it got worse but gives an idea. As u can see in camera 4 water as far as u can see.[​IMG]and being below sea level and living in close proximity to the marsh there's literally nothing that can be done flash floods suck. Its down now but suppose to get more till Saturday. I'll go through a lot of straw

    gotta make the best of it. Get u a pool lounger and a glass of iced tea and float around. You could start bottling that up and shipping it off to shubin so he can water his desert.
    I keep looking at those pics. That's ridiculous. Ain't gonna hear me complaining about the weather no more.

    That's just wrong buddy! She needs to benefit from them somehow, you just have to figure that one out on your own
