Hi all! I know that some of you on the Forum have mentioned that spouses have been a little less than crazy about chickens. My husband was not too crazy about our chickens. He has tolerated them but has been know to complain about them not laying yet (too young) and feed consumption. So needless to say I was a bit nervous when I had to go to help out my parents for 3 days. This left my DH to take care of all the chicken care. I showed him everything I do. (He watched with a bored look) I wrote everything down. (He barely glanced at it) When I called to see how he was doing with the chickens. ( Barely mentioned them) So I figure that all my birds have been either eaten or he's been letting them free range all over my yard. (bad, they would wipe out my garden) So, I get home and first he tells me,"I haven't fed or watered them since you left." Then he laughs(just kidding) and tells me how he thinks they are the most fascinating pets ever! It's nice to be able to talk with him about the chickens and their "personalities". Better yet he actually knows which ones I'm talking about! I just wanted to share the conversion of my DH.
