    My name is Becky and I, too, am a Chickaholic.........

    Yep, it comes around each year about this time. The only thing that can help is to have a close member of the family that enjoys building and endless projects........and, of course, the purchase of a good, reliable incubator.....for Chickaholism is always accompanied by Hatchaholism.

    (btw-this is not the best place to get help for your condition)
