    I'm thinking a barred rock young rooster. I would also like to get 2 more pullet. The dh is having a cow. He thinks 6 hens is enough. He's ok getting the rooster ..... but he thinks I'm chicken crazy. I also have a 1 pekin duck & 1 mallard duck. I sorta went crazy at TSC one friday when he wasn't with me......[​IMG] .......go figure.[​IMG]

    ROFL. My husband is having a very similar response. I told him I wanted 6 standard sized laying hens, and a rooster and he was fine with that. The six bantams he thinks I'm INSANE for, and don't even get him started on the dogs, cats, parrot, hamster and goat. I do animal rescue. H e grumbles and groans a lot ;-). The perfect partnership.

    They sound like an awesome crew. We've got. Um, you know what? really not worth it. I've got a pomeranian and a poodle, both blind, who are absolutely the loves of our lives, and a little doxie who is about the same age as your shih-tzu. I almost want to set up a puppy play date for them somewhere *LOL*. I've got around the bend, clearly.
