Quote:X2 It bothers me that your husband sounds so dismissive of your fears, and I'm wondering if there's a communication issue. I would give him the benefit of the doubt that he doesn't understand the depth of your fear and restate it in absolute terms, "Honey, I am terrified of the roosters. I know you like them, and I was willing to do what you wanted but it isn't working and I don't feel safe enough to continue trying. I'm going to advertise both roosters on Craigslist, unless you'd rather kill and eat them. I won't spend one more day being terrorized by them." -- Something like that. I definitely wouldn't lie about it. You are wayyyyy more important than a rooster and I have to believe that your husband agrees. If he doesn't, you have much bigger problems than roosters on your hands.
