    I think I have three people on my Facebook account that I can talk chickens to, and they don't think I'm a nut job! I'm not sure when I announce the arrival of the Very First egg if most of the my friends will really get it! Do you have many chicken friends outside BYC?

    Quote:Really? Can I score a couple just to talk chicken to? ;-). I can almost hear crickets chirping in the background of my posts if I post about my chickens! I was so proud of my self built coop, I out in on FB and it was appreciated, but I'm pretty sure everyone was thinking "really? For some chickens?"

    [​IMG]I have one chicken friend, kind of lol. My DH's friend has chickens and turkeys too. He got them a few months ago, so I finally have someone not on BYC I can talk chickens too, lol. He is also a chicken enabler. I traded him 2 silkies for 4 ducks when I lost a duckling and needed some to keep my lone duckling company. Also called and let us know he just picked up some turkeys. I can't be outdone, lol, so had to go pick up a couple. Got him on the lookout for a few goslings now.... maybe it would be better if I didn't have chicken friends.

    Sure!!! Friend me at [email protected] and I can hook you up with some groups that chat - not all the time, but they do now and then. If you are female or a worthy male I can add you to Desperate Farmwives. We have a male there. Boyd. [​IMG]

    Nope, BYC is my social life. Well, I have ONE I talk chickens with. But she's on BYC. But other than that I'd say a good 90% of my friends are BYCers.

    yeah, most of my friends are chicken people [​IMG] in a small town like this, almost everyone has chickens or at least some kind of animal. you're strange if you don't! 4-h helps, too, i have a lot of 4-h friends and they mostly have livestock... i feel like i'm bragging... am i bragging? i don't know, but it's nice to have people as crazy as i am around [​IMG]
