    My name is Jared, and I am addicted to chickens, and other species of poultry. I have heard that the first step to overcoming addiction is admitting to it, So there I'm glad that is over![​IMG] So anyways, I have three full grown chickens, two hens and a rooster, 24 chicks, and dove. It is not enough, I am already wanting to order more chicks, because Ideal is not only running specials(25 pullets for $35), but I am thinking I can sell some chicks, starter pullets and eventually egg at the Farmer's Market and make some money. I also want ducks, and I have a friend that is going to give me some eggs! I am also thinking I am going to get two guinneas, for protection of my flock. I have two Large cotton trailer coops divided into six pens, and the full grow chickens and new chicks will fit into 4 of the 6. There is still room!
    Anyways, My questions are:
    Am I crazy?
    Should I do this or am I over my head?
    How can I overcome my addiction?

    Thanks for the help!

    Since there are so many people addicted maybe I could make some money if I started a Poultry Addiction Rehab Center! I thought I was all alone!

    Just wait until you start hatching (oh it will come). That's what roped me in to my doom

    Are you crazy? yes.

    Should I do this? Why not? Try it, see if you enjoy it. If not, you can always sell your birds.

    How can you overcome your addiction? You can't.
