I think I'm addicted

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have been a backyard chicken guy for about a month or so. I think I may have a problem. I am enjoying these birds a lot as is my family! Is this normal? We are already up to 8 birds!
2 RIR, 2 EE (1roo) , 2 Buff Orp, and 2 Black stars!
I hope this doesn't cause me to end up in a Chicken Anonymous group one day....

:welcome

 

I think another name for BYC is Chickens Anonymous, lol. They are habit forming and that chicken math is a tough habit to break (but why would you want to?). And we're all terrible enablers here, no one is going to say you have enough birds.

 

Make yourself at home here, there's a ton of information and nice, helpful members.

 

Thanks for joining us!

Hi and welcome to BYC. Is it normal you ask? - it is here on the site ;). At least we can all talk chicken without getting weird looks :D which is therapy in itself.

 

All the best

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. All of us here at BYC have OCD (Obsessive Chicken Disorder) and very few of us are immune to "chicken math." :o) Black Stars (Black Sex Links) are my personal favorites as they are very friendly and hardy laying machines. You should get loads of large brown eggs from those two girls. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
