    and now I think I am addicted to chickens.

    How did this happen? All I can think about is getting more chickens. Is this normal?

    Oh good, then I don't have to fill that prescription that my doctor gave me. He said I was hypomanic.

    I am just a chicken lover is all.

    Thanks for the reassurance.

    I have the same problem with pygmy goats.

    Welcome from Illinois! The same thing happened to me when a neighbor showed up with two pullets in a dog kennel. I was hooked immediately.

    Quote:[​IMG] Yup, it's completely normal. Everyone here is affected to some degree.

    You didn't happen to rescue Silkie chickens, did you? [​IMG] If so, there is no hope of recovery from your addiction.

    [​IMG] and glad to have you here! [​IMG]
