    Because you had chicks partying in your bathtub all night can you? I know I'd get a laugh and then a grumble.

    Have you ever been late because of your chicks if so let's hear your stories!

    I HAVE told my boss I was late because I was:

    -up all night watching chicks hatch
    -chasing an escapee rooster through the neighborhood
    -Performing some strange emergency surgery.
    -out of clothes because I decided it woul be a good idea to fill the feeders in my kitty heels
    -did not have any shoes that were poop-free

    He knows not to question, since i will show up with pictures. He learned this when my human babies came down with a 6-week run of tummy troubles. Never question a mommy who thinks poop is funny.

    The only time that the chickens made me late is because my Serama babies were hatching. I couldn't manage to pull myself away from the incubator. I eventually ended up having a friend put a note on the door of my office stating that I would be closed for the day and I stayed home. [​IMG]

    However, my ducks make me late all the time. They have figured out how to get out of the pen and I have to round them up before I leave. I recently got geese and they have taught the ducks to fly over the fence. I don't have a problem with predators, so my pen is not enclosed at this moment. We are moving in a month and the new pens will be entirely enclosed because we will have a creek on two sides of our property.

    I'm too scared to tell my boss that I'm late because of my dog/chicks so I just walk in like I'm right on time or if he looks at me funny I just say "You know I'll stay late 4 out 5 days this week" and it's true [​IMG]
