    How to tell if you have OCD (Obsessive Chicken Disorder)
    -you call the hens your girls and name them after great, great grandmas and aunts
    -you are used to checking the bottom of your feet before you come inside
    -Your friends give you chicken themed gifts (and you like it)
    -you think of reasons to have tasty leftovers to purposely give your girls
    -you make sure they are tucked in every night
    -every time you lose a chicken you cry because they are part of the family
    -you make lists of reasons you need more chickens and look forward to spring when baby chicks arrive in stores
    -you'd rather be outside hanging with the hens than inside watching TV
    -you don't understand people that don't want chickens
    -you greet them every morning in a sing-song voice
    -you have multiple photos of your flock on your smart phone and make everyone look at the latest pictures
    You'll be happy to know there is no cure!

    I've got OCD! Anyone else?

    Does it make me crazy if I sometimes softly sing to them when tucking them in?

    You are a bunch of sick individuals! To treat bird brain chickens like people is disgusting!

    It, however, is comforting to know that we are not alone!

    This is Bajabirdbrain AFTER washing the bum of a neighbors chicken, blow drying the hen because it was cold and BEFORE we got our own girls! SICK-SICK! ( I held the hen while she was washed)
