    The other day, my boyfriend and I went to the local feed store to get who-knows-what and they have more baby chicks!

    My first chickens (13) are only 10 days old and already I was eyeing more! [​IMG] You guys weren't kidding when you talk about addiction! [​IMG]

    Oh yeah. Don't look at us for help. We're enablers. My 5 week olds moved out 2 days ago and I'm already "just thinking about" some more.

    Enjoy your chicks! [​IMG]

    Yeah.. let's see.. when hubby and I first talked about this it was 2.. then I talked him into 3..

    Now we have 10 nearly egg-laying, and three babies in the house.. and we're both waiting for hatchable eggs in the spring... LOL! He keeps talking about expanding the coop, and I told him the bigger it is the more chickens we'll have!

    Yup, we've got 10 chickens, 5 more on the way...and someone is getting an incubator for CHRISTMAS! [​IMG]

    Seriously, it is an addiction. *snuffles* I know, because I'm going through chicken withdraw right now because I didn't get to cuddle Tiberius tonight. Was at work too late. [​IMG] I swear, I should make her a chicken diaper and bring her inside and make her sleep with me. And get another rooster so I can make more Tiberius-ettes. Or just sneakily add onto my current order......[​IMG] "gee, I dunno what happened! They must be peanut packing chicks!"

    Plus that; my boss was telling me today that I need to stop buying chickens/chicken related things so I can put money into my retirement fund.....[​IMG]

    They had Americaunas (sp?) at the feed store and I was thisclose to sneaking one home. DB wouldn't notice just one more, right? hee hee.

    I think once we start getting eggs he'll want more too. He keeps talking about 'the best omelette in the world' that he's going to make. [​IMG]

    The feed store had more chicks this late in the season? Oh heaven help me if the one near me does that! I can't resist baby chicks and my husband would go bananas if I brought more home. We are busy winterizing. It's all I can do to wait 'til next spring.

    Nothing like chicken addiction! [​IMG] My DH was fussing when I first ordered 25 now he races out to gather eggs and gets upset if he doesn't get to gather any. He always made fun of me talking to my girls [​IMG] Now he is [​IMG]
