    I guess I talked too much about the peeps I've ordered because I apparently gave my parents new-chickitis. They now have four chicks added to my existing order and (since I'm borrowing their brooder), I'll be caring for those four with mine until they're feathered. Ah, chicken math...

    You know.. there is a 12-step program for this.

    1. Admit that you have a problem
    2. Appeal to those on BYC to help you with your problem
    3. Make a decision to do something about your problem
    4. Make an inventory of your current chickens
    5. Realize the shortcomings in your current flock
    6. Realize that the shortcomings include a lack of banties, olive eggers, and one Black Copper Maran
    7. Tell everyone you know that you how you are lacking in these areas
    8. Make a list of all such people who you feel should also have chickens. Make coops.
    9. Continue to take inventory
    10. Seek after more chickens.
    11. Seek more knowledge of more chickens
    12. Realizing that you have not solved this problem in the way your spouse and others initially intended.. go about converting them to Chicken Math!
