    He now knows that I would far rather be out with the chickens than cleaning our house! [​IMG] I don't want him to grow to resent these birdies...guess I will make him a very special omelet tomorrow morn [​IMG] and the next and the next...

    Does anyone else have a spouse who isn't nearly as fond of the chickens as you are?

    i have a boyfriend who has realized how much i love my ducks, and hes really sweet about it. he says if they're this important to me, then they're important to him as well. he's helping me rebuild the pen this weekend. he's amazing [​IMG] he wants to buy me ducks for my birthday and he's fine with going out in the night in the rain to check on the ducks when the dog flips out. i love him [​IMG]

    He says he isn't, but I know better. He has his favorites. Last year when neighbor dogs nearly wiped out the flock, he was almost as upset as I was. When we had to pick up the bodies he even remembered all of their names (he ususally just pretends that he doesn't know who was who). However, I believe that he really doesn't like Rodney, my BJG roo. They occasionally battle it out.

    my hen likes to lay her egg in my feed barrel when the lid is off in the shed my dogs sleep... my dog had 5 puppies last night ( thought dog would get mad kill her but she didn't) the lid was off the feed barrel because it was empty and boy was she fussing... so hubby ran to the feed store so he could fill it up just so she could lay her egg... (he would have went and got feed later in the day)... she layed her egg and left...she is the strangest chicken I have... the dogs don't let the other chickens or ducks in that shed just her... she has got her daddy wrapped around her finger

    I think my husband gets a little irritated that I spend so much time browsing the BYC Forum...lol. [​IMG] But I think he enjoys my little chickens just about as much as I do...he'll go out and spend time with them in the run even when I'm not out there. [​IMG]

    My husband doesn't have much of a problem with chicks and hens, but my rooster doesn't get along with him very well, so he does grouch about that darn rooster!

    I think it's kinda funny. Huge ol man afraid of little rooster. Course I don't laugh where DH can see me! lol

    He flaps around a lot, but he's never actually hurt anyone. He doesn't mess with me at all, and I do 99% of the yard work, so I fail to see how it's a problem.
    It's a problem because...DH just doesn't want to take time to interact with the rooster, such as to carry him around or take the ladies some BOSS.
