    Okay, I've had 7 chickens for about a year now....decided to order some more a few weeks ago....found this site....was ready to click send on an order of 25 chicks....decided to wait because I wasn't sure I really had enough room for that many more chicks....someone is supposed to bring me a few more like the ones I have (maybe 10 or 12....not really sure)....I hesitate, call some local numbers in the classifieds....decide not to buy chicks online....drive several hours to get some mixed chicks.....come home.....call another number.....drive another hour to get some more chicks....then buy more today while I'm out [​IMG]. I now have 26 chickens.....and a bator with almost 2 dozen eggs due in the next 7, 8, and 13 days....and if I get the other chickens....

    Anyone else like this? Does this madness ever end?? I already have to build more roosts and maybe even a bigger coop....

    If I wasn't held in check, that is exactly what I would do. Don't worry, chickens are a disease. You're not crazy. :p

    Ok, step away from that phone, LOL! Do the math. Do you really have room for more? 4 sq ft is the least amt of room you need in a coop PER STANDARD BIRD. Do you have enough for all these birds? That may stop you.

    Hmm. I'd better stay out of this one. I don't really set a good example and have no right to give anyone advice on whether or not to get more birds.



















    (buy a big shed and gofer it!!)

    Beck you are BAD, LOL! Hey, the only thing that keeps me from getting more is that I have no room for another bird. Says she who just built her THIRD coop, LOL! [​IMG]

    Hello my name is Dennis and I am a CHICKAHOLIC. Admiting your addiction is just the first step. Now you have to act on the addiction, and this is the wrong place you will just be encouraged to get more and build more coops(yes I ment to put the s on the end of coop). Hey but at least your amoungst friends. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Maybe coop isn't the word I should have used. My chickens free range on 11 acres of land all day every day. They roost in a building that is closed off from predators at night.

    Hey!
    Sounds like you really could use more chickens...
