I know this is not a chicken-behavior, but more of a chicken-lover behavior. I am closing in on the end of my very first year of "chickening". As I look back on the past year, I remember that in the beginning, my plan was to have 4 hens and now somehow I have 17 and I am researching my next " must have" breed. Now how has this happened?? So I began to wonder "does this phenomena happen to everyone?" So I would like to pose the question " how many chickens/hens/roosters did you PLAN on having and how many did you end up with?..surely I cannot be the only one who has fallen victim to this mysterious chicken revolution?
