Hi, my name is CookiesDaddy, and I am an addict. 2 weeks ago, I took my two children, 11 and 9, to a feed store to buy a couple of chicks for them. We ended up with 4, one for each member of my family. Mine is a Black Sex Link, which I named "Cookie". Since then, my life has not been the same. I'm crazy about Cookie and Muffin (nick named Pasty Butt) and Caramel and Butterscotch. I am tempted to get two more (to a maximum number of 6 hens allowed by my city). I became addicted to the BYC forum. I spend too much time with the chicks and cannot get anything done during the day. At night I cannot stop thinking about how to build the coop and run for them. I have learned a lot from this site but still have some questions, which I will post soon. But the biggest question is this: Does this obsession have an end? Do I have any hope? Will I be able to recover from this addiction? How? And ... am I bringing up these questions to a wrong group of people???
