    I have had chickens for several years meat and layers. Then all of a sudden I decided to get more. Then I found this website, got even more layer chicks. Decided to get more than the normal amount for me of meat birds. Now I have DH making a new LARGER coop. To top it all off I just ordered fertile eggs to try and hatch with my kids.

    How did this happen? I went from just having a few and liking it to now I cant get enough and loving it.

    Just had to share my little vent.

    Hope you're DH is adding lots of room to your coop because if you stay on here you'll end up with chickens running out your ears!!!! At least you're in good company, huh?!!! LOL

    I started with 10 (about) freebies that the old owners of my house didn't want. Now those are long gone (weasel or coon) and I have almost 30. I have 5 in the bator (origanally 9) and even some ducks. I want some guineas, and some bantam chickens. Its an obsession, but I love it.
