    No, my chickens aren't sick, I think I've got it. It started last week when a friend offered to give me two roosters that he needed to get rid of. I cleaned out the old chicken house and three days later found four hens on Craigslist. Well yesterday, I found a local fee store that has a large selection on birds. I had planned on only getting 3-4 more, but after seeing what they had, I came
    Home with 8 more hens.
    Here's what I now have.
    2 Barnvelder
    Gold Sebright
    silver sebright
    Black sex link
    2 Buff Orpington
    Plymouth Rock
    Rhode Island Red
    Saggitas ? (production Red)
    I think i better seek help. If these all start laying, I'll have eggs coming out of my ears!

    Hi and [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Yes, most of us have caught Chickenitous, Chicken fever, Chicken addict, etc. [​IMG]
    Its not very hard to catch it! I went to a feed store last spring and bought 8 chicks, I saw some Leghorn pullets at another feed store and ended up getting 6 more, and then this August I went to our towns annual 4-h chicken sale and bought 3 more pullets! I've got chicken fever!!

    If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to ask or just hop right over to the Learning Center:

    Have a great time on here and best wishes! [​IMG]

    Welcome aboard! Yes, you're definitely in the company of fellow addicts here. I started out with a flock of 25 last January and now I have 93 (counting 37 Cornish Cross meat birds) and I'm just finishing a multi-pen breeding coop and starting a breeding program. So yeah you're definitely in the right place. You might want to start planning your next coop now before you have chicks on the way like I always seem to do. Look forward to hearing from you going forward, and good luck with your flock.
