So this is how our chicken discussions have evolved. 2 years ago: Him: "You are a crackpot. I'll divorce you if you ever bring home a filthy bird." 1 year ago: Him: "NO WAY am I EVER building a chicken coop. You can forget it." 1 month ago: Him: "I have some bad news: I'm building you a chicken coop." 2 weeks ago: Him: "The coop will be 4' x 8', and 6' tall at the tallest point. Let's start off with 6 chickens." 1 week ago: Him: "When you get them, just get 12 chickens. Some might die." 3 days ago: Me: "The minimum online order is 25." Him: "Well, then we're getting 25, then, aren't we?" Today: Him: "I just realized that if we build the coop 6'x10' and make it 8' high for the back wall and 5' high for the front wall, that's a lot less scrap." Chicken logic is the process by which I went from crackpot to coop planner in 2 years' time. Chicken geometry is the process by which our coop plans went from a 4x8x6 coop to a 6x10x8 coop in a month. Chicken multiplication is the process by which we went from 6 chickens to 25 chickens in 2 weeks. I clinched the deal by telling him how smart he was, because he's building it big enough that he'll never have to do this again!!! (perhaps, though, this was my mistake, seeing as how it's inevitable that we'll get more chickens next year--I'm already pricing incubators!!!) Just thought I'd share--I've been giggling for days now!
