So my wife and I and the kids have been talking about getting some chickens for a while now but we hadn't made any living accomadations for them until one day while at work she called me and said "The kids and I are going to tractor supply to "look" at chickens"...what happened next? I come home to 4 New Hampshire red chicks and 2 pekin ducklings (which she said was "just because". So now we are knee deep in chickens and ducks (my father-in-law bought 6 more RIR's) and I found myself spending hours on this website figuring things out. Needless to say it has been fun, but I finally realized I need to sign up and join so here we are!

Typical story we hear over and over - funny thing the new chicken parents suddenly go nuts and buy more and more chicks- and end up with a full blown addiction. Don't think for a minute you'll escape their grasp. Chicken math sets in - ie., if you get a roo (rooster) replace it with two pullets (girls) and so on. If you are building a coop - make it larger than necessary- you'll be shocked how fast you fill it up. Glad to have you on board - you know of course we are all enablers and you can never have too many chickens according to us.

I agree about the addiction growing easily! I always find myself looking at the hatchery catalogs for one or two new breeds, and find ten I want to have!!
