What a chicken!

A few days ago, I told my husband that our CSA farm had just gotten some chickens. I mentioned it to let him know that I was going to be heading over there to buy some eggs.

But every time I mention chickens or eggs, my husband gets a crazy, fearful look in his eyes. I know why. He thinks that this time, I'm going to say I want to raise chickens in the backyard.

You know what? I kind of do. Shhh, don't tell TK. I'll break it to him gently. He's kind of a chicken. With three boys, our house is kind of a dude-fest. Maybe next spring I'll add a couple of chicks to the family.

I would love to have chickens and I think my husband would too, but not where we live now. Actually, I'd love to have a sheep that I could shear then card and spin and knit the wool. A little crazy since I don't know how to do any of that, but we would have to move for any of that to happen.

I think that you and my hubby are related ... lol! This morning, my hubs saw an ad in freecycle for a 6-mo old chicken who was looking for a good, safe (ie won't be eaten) home. We live in an apartment and there just isn't a way but he still gave me sad little puppy dog eyes. Maybe we'll have to move. (tehe)
