What a great idea for a thread! I hope lots of people reply as I would like to know how people became addicted also.
I blame my cats!
We have two indoor cats who had an outdoor, enclosed run. When we moved they did not have a run; so that they were still able to go outside, we bought a small coop and attached a run until we could make them something bigger.
When we finished their larger run we had an empty chicken coop .. can’t leave that empty!
2 x bantams was our ‘Welcome to Chickens’ .. 2 x bantams has become 6 x bantams and numerous renovations, extensions to both the coop [now coops joined together] and run.
I used to be one who spent lots of time cleaning the house and while looking OK, the garden was not the best. Now that I have chickens, total turnaround .. while looking OK, the inside of the house only gets a quick once over and the garden, because I enjoy spending so much time in it with my gals, looks beautiful
I am addicted! I wonder what I did with all my spare time before chickens
Yeah I'm interested in the social interaction between people and their birds.
Thanks for your contribution
