How long did it take before people were giving you chickens?

    ...and I mean collectibles?!?

    In the past week I've been given a chicken candy dish and today it was a chicken kitchen timer. Both are cute but I'm not exactly a collector-type!

    Did people suddenly start to give you chicken-themed things once you got chooks?

    [​IMG] My son's babysitter gave me a rooster figurine. She picked it up while on vacation this past summer....long before she got her free eggs [​IMG]

    Hubby got me a rug for my kitchen that says "He rules the roost, but she rules the rooster", and then got me a little plaque thats says "my coop was clean last week, you should have been here". That was 5 months into having chickens. Now at 7 months in I am getting pfalzgraff, Sunrise silverware with a rooster on the end of the handle.

    I sent DH to Riteaid for cold meds on his way home from work the other night...he handed me a bag when he came in and in it was the meds, a big bottle of spring water and a Rooster statue! [​IMG]

    MIL bought me a chicken tablecloth, a 2009 calendar, clock and coffee mugs.

    I guess I will have a ton of chicken stuff after this Christmas.

    My mother sent me a big, tin rooster for the garden, rooster dish towels and a rooster pot holder set along with a rooster card. =P

    [​IMG] Well, I collected rubber duckies when I was in high school and so I already had a reputation and was given ducky stuff. Funny that now I have dug myself an even bigger hole, now that I have a dozen ducks. But you know, I'm totally not compaining. [​IMG]

    I figure the chicken-theme items will start next year after I get my first chickens. [​IMG]
