    It started out to be 1 chick and 1 duckling that were given to my DD when attending the local stockyard.... From there we got two more hens since it was going to be a while before the chick started to lay....

    DH wanted fresh eggs... So I got some more hens and then more and more then some chicks, some ducks, some turkeys, and now geese....

    I'm up to 16 hens, and 4 roosters, 4 ducks, 3 turkeys, and 2 geese... and I just ordered 8 more chicks and a friend has 2 duck eggs in a bator for me....

    Do I need professional help or will it go away by itself....

    Oh and did I mention the 4 pygmy goats?? 3 bred does ready to pop anyday and a billy that needs to go so we don't have anymore babies??

    [​IMG] I WISH I had all that you have lol. My DH won't let me have even half of what you have over there. Addiction? What addiction? I have never heard of an addiction to chickens lol. Just becasue I'm itching to order right now even though I actually have to wait till mid april does not mean I'm addicted. And just becasue I am still trying extremly hard to get DH to let me have just one little pygmy goat does not mean I'm addicted. Oh and he knows that I would actually come home with more then one lol. There is no addiction and even if there was it will never get better or go away. [​IMG]

    I knew you all would understand the compulsion....

    DH is ready to strangle me over more and more animals....

    I believe he secretly likes them as much as I do but is too manly to admit it....

    He has his limits.... DS wants a pot-bellied pig and DD wants a pony.... We only have 5 acres and some of the fencing needs to be fixed....

    DH grew up in the city and I in suburbia so living on a farm in KY is a dream come true.....

    You sounds so shocked?! [​IMG]

    Don't worry... when you have to move out of your house and move the chickens into it.... then you'll have a 'problem'.
