Lol thanks everyone for the support. You would think I would be used to people making dumb comments about my animals. I get plenty of 'They are going to try and get your eyes!" comments about my pet rats. I should be used to all the crazy by now lol.
And yes having these chicks along with OCD is a HUGE deal. I remember the day my neighbor brought them I was so freaked out because two chicks were "pasting up" and it was just too much. I couldn't handle it. But then I looked up that they could DIE if I didn't suck it up and wipe the poo off their vents. and so I put some rubber gloves on (an OCD's best friend) and got to work. That really got me over my poop issue. Because I would not want chicks to die just because I have a problem with germs. Though like I said above my hands are still extremely dry and cracked because of how often I do wash my hands (though to be fair I would probley be washing my hands just as much without the chicks).
I have always found it easier to bend my rules when it comes to animals. I tend to put animal welfare before my own.
But they all really help out with my OCD and Anxiety Disorder. My Lab/Beagle has even be certified as a service dog. His purpose is to keep me calm/normal in social situations, he can sense when I am about to have a intense anxiety attack and because he can help me catch it before it becomes a full on attack I can stop myself.
But even the chickens are great for a calming influence. I love sitting with my Silkies and cuddling with them or just watching them be chickens for hours. Same with the chicks :).
