I'm about to hit the road to pick up Chicks. If you're heading east on the 401 this morning and spot a Volvo with a bunch of Chicks riding shotgun, honk!

(I promise, this is the LAST time I pick up Chicks! I'm trying to curb my ways. Since they are for Rocky, does that make me a Chick Trafficker?)

How many chicks are you getting? One of our "rules" living in our area is that you can only have 25 chickens at once. I don't think I would want any more than that on five acres anyway. Lol

We have five properties. I have 23 chickens, no rooster (!) at one; the DH has 9 hens, 1 rooster at another rural property, and we have 9 hens, 1 rooster (Rocky) out at the farm. We're good. My property is zoned Ag2, the farm is zoned the same. The DH's property is the only one that is "iffy" but the neighbour across the road has 24 hens and 1 rooster, so I think we're good. I so want "silver stockings." No more--no more! We don't want to fall into the "chicken hoarder" class. Collectively, on three properties, we have 41 hens (not all are laying yet) and 2 roosters. Enough! BTW, the girls are on holiday--they are not working in the egg production factory. I got 11 eggs yesterday, 6 the day before, and only 4 today. I guess they are on holidays.

You still have enough eggs for a nice Sunday omelet.

Sad, sad day yesterday. The DH came by, with his dogs, to saw some firewood. His dog (who has pissed on my furniture, ripped my curtains, scratched my walls, fought with my foster dog) killed mini Millie and Pebbles yesterday--but he's "good" with the DH's flock--right.

I have the girls listed for sale. I have s/one interested in Millie, Penny, Henny, Eggatha, and Prudence. It breaks my heart. The DH is not willing to manage his dog (the dog has also killed a neighbour's cat and kittens), has growled at me...etc The DH is not willing to manage his dog or train it--it is a good dog--right. I said that he should consider leash-walking, crating, not letting the dog out on the property when the girls are out. He can't (won't) do that to the dog--instead he will let it kill my chickens. I have tolerated said dog--and, I love dogs, but not this dog--he is not a nice dog, but could be if his owner would be willing to set boundaries and train him--not willing to do that. Killing Pebbles and Mini Millie was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I need the DH to help with stuff around the house, but he won't do anything re: managing his chicken-killing dog and I can't put more of the girls at risk. I have requested that the people who buy them buy them as pets....we'll see. And yes, it hurts that the dog is more important than I am or our relationship.

Mods, could you please close this thread tomorrow? Thanks.
