    Thats how i feel excited out of my mind!!!! And worried [​IMG] We have coyotes around here i live in a rural urban neighborhood and u can hear them roaming the streets at night.. and im super scared that the coyotes will kill them once they are big enough to be outside.. i have a 6ft fence and im gonna buy the 33day dispensers of wolf urine to place along my fence line... but i cant really afford to do too much more... i dont know what else i can do to protect them from these neighborhood pests..

    OMG LOL... i got my son evan (age 7) all amped up excited for the new chicks to arrive this after noon when i showed him youtube videos of the chicks we were getting and what they would look like when they will start laying eggs and how we will get the eggs... (HE HAD TONS OF QUESTIONS) My husband has been out of town friday and today until this evening and had no idea that i answered all evans questions about chicks and how they hatch all that stuff (hadn;t gotten that far yet) so i was in my room and i hear loudly from the other room: Evan, "BUT DAD I LOOOOOVVVEEE BLACK CHICKS!!!!" OMG i started laughing so **** hard.... and ran out to the living room to see the weirdest look on my husbands face... "PRICELESS" .When me and evan were talking about chicks (chickens) earlier and he liked the black ones the most.. jason didnt quiet understand what evan was talking about when he said he wanted a black chick out of the blue.. lol the look on jasons face.. "PRICELESS" I wish i would of had my camera... then after that my husband said what?! and evan responded.. "dad you can have a black and white chick" My husbands face was still very confused and couldnt help but bust up laughing (as so was my husbands best friend)...Then evan said, "Yeah dad they will get big and we will get eggs & eat them!" Then he understood.. omg it was just so priceless... you cant even imagine!
