    I got 3 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Americaunas this spring and all I can do is think about how I now want to enlarge my coop and buy more of differing breeds in the spring. They are just so fun!!! I am going to go crazy when I get my first egg!!!!! I think that my husband thinks that I am going crazy!!!!!!

    Chickens are very addicting!! My DH and everyone else around me think I have gone crazy! No one else seems remotely interested in chickens and sometimes I think I bore them to death talking about them. I have learned so much from this forum and I spend a lot of time either on this site or looking up chickens on the internet or reading chicken books. I get the greatest joy from watching a momma hen and her little babies or watching a new baby hatch in the incubator. Yea, I am addicted... [​IMG]

    Hello. My name is Becky and I, too, am a Chickaholic as well as a Hatchaholic........my dh knows I'm crazy and even he has fallen under the feathered spell and now has his own flock of EE's. To my knowledge there is no cure and the only successful treatment known to chickenkind is

    No way! I'm not addicted.
    I'm not in denial either. Nope. Not me.

    It's a disease, not an addiction. [​IMG]

    It is a disease/addiction. And this forum, it is an enabler. Once you get in, it's an endless rabbit hole...

    Enjoy your chickens!! [​IMG]

    Hey Becky,
    How did you get your hubby to fall under the "feather spell" ? No matter what chickens I try to interest him in, it just hasn't worked so far..... [​IMG]
