    12 Step Program
    Step 1……….Admit that you have a problem.
    Step 2 ………Let the enablers (those that introduce you to new breeds of chickens you don’t have yet) know that you have a problem.
    Step 3……....Purchase those new breeds of chicks from step 2.
    Step 4……....Deal with the crowding situation in your coop.
    Step 5 ………Admit you have a problem.
    Step 6 …… Build a larger than necessary coop so you have room to buy more chicks.
    Step 7 ………Buy more chicks.
    Step 8.………Invest in an incubator to start hatching your own chicks (claim this on your income tax under “Health Care” - it saved your life).
    Step 9 ………Clear a room in your house to keep incubators, brooders, etc. you’ll need the space.
    Step 10.……Add on to your coop and assure husband it’s only “an addition” (until the eggs hatch).
    Step 11 .… Move to more acreage so your chickens will have more room (no other reason nec.).
    Step 12 … See step 1.

    Ha! I'm not quite there yet. I am only on step 10. I Still have 2 more steps before I complete the program, then I will be a TRUE addict.

    I'm already thinking about places to move with acreage!!!!!!

    I want to be close to the city, but not so close to be in danger of being annexed later or having a fancy pants neighborhood built along my propertyline [​IMG]
