I haven't been on here in a while. I was a addict for awhile. I was buying and hatching all kinds off eggs. At one point I was up to about 100 total... chickens, chicks, ducks, and ducklings. Then my life changed. My husband decided he didn't want to be married anymore. I went to stay at my moms. I started to get rid of a bunch of the chickens and at the same time had a horrible massacure from raccoons and opposums. (put a night cam in barn to see what it was) this was while they were still at the farm with my husband. I finally was able to take about 20 chickens with me to my mothers. But they are all gone now too, gave them to friends and sold some. I have moved three times since July, so there was no way for me to take them. I can't believe how much I miss them. It is weird and my sounds silly to someone that doesn't have chickens, but I really do miss them. I can get my bantams back but that is only two and one lf hen. But I NEED MORE! I received an old wooden bator that holds up to 400 eggs and I am ready to fire her up.... (again, used it last spring) I was a recovering addict, but I WANT to fall off the wagon and be an addict again! Doesnt sound very good, I'm sure. Anyone want to help feed my addiction? I am back on my farm, my husband is gone. Sad but I miss my animals more than him. I miss my old boy RJ also, more than my husband. He was my 1/4 horse that was in his late 30's he was put down in Oct. Thanks for listening. I missed this site and missed my chickens. Hope I have a better yr this yr. Hope everyone has a good yr.
