    I think I may have a problem,,,,Me and the wife cannot go to the feed store or Tractor Supply without getting at least 4 chicks. Our flock is not at 19 chicks and 13 one year olds. 4 or 5 different breeds so far.
    I'm hoping there is a cure but as it stands now I just keep telling her "At least its not another gun!" although a new gun sounds nice,,,,,,

    dude, ya'll are screwed......no two ways about it........

    and you have to the absolute worst place to seek help.......


    every last person, and I mean every last rotten one on this site, is a bunch of enablers!!!


    they tell you one more won't hurt........build your coop bigger than you need.........oh these chicks are so sweet.....or those are great layers.....

    enablers, every last one of them.

    bud, you have just stepped off the edge of the cliff, and done fell in the lion's den......

    I will also add, that while they do add to yer addiction, there isn't a better group of folks around. more knowledge, and willing to help you out no matter what is bothering you.

    You can do what I do. Sell some chickens to make room for more. And while you are getting the new ones, somehow think you can get more than the number you sold...

    Plus which, there are many, many more breeds you've never tried. You might like them much better than the ones you have now. If you don't get them it will nag at you for the rest of your life
