    You're hatching them;
    You have them in your room;
    Your on BYC.
    A couple right off the top of my head.

    You drool when you see one but do not have one [​IMG]

    You go to the feed store a lot just to see their little chickies

    Everyone at school knows you're chicken crazy

    You yell at everyone about chickens

    You randomly check hatchery availability even though you know you won't be able to get any [​IMG]

    If you could get them, you would have at least 100

    You wear chicken shirts

    Your budgies argue about who would be the first to meet the future chickens [​IMG]

    You become a magic birdie!

    You look up chickens on google or wikipedia

    You are constantly planning coops...

    ...And picking out chicken breeds

    You watch chickens on Youtube

    You spend at least 3 hours on BYC every day

    You wait 113 days...

    ... and counted down for the day you get your chicks...

    ....just to be told you can't have them

    You have dreams about chickies

    You go to animal shelters just to see their chickens

    That's me at least.

    You spend more time cleaning the girls' coop and run than you do your house.

    You keep building chicken coops because you are adding to your flock but don't want them fighting for their own rooms.

    You bring an old ice cream bucket to parties so you can bring home food scraps for "the girls".

    You carry pictures of them on your phone and none of your family....

    Your parents refer to your Ladies as their "grandchickens" ....

    When you intentionally clean out your purse to make room for the plastic bag to slip the leftovers from dinners into....

    When your coworkers send you home on Fridays with "Birdie Bags" full of leftovers and scraps....

    You know you're addicted to raising backyard chickens when... you constantly wonder where all the space in your yard had gone....and then you see your many coops..... [​IMG]
