    I am guessing I'm not alone with this "addiction" [​IMG]. I am absolutely in love with chickens, and now have talked my husband into helping me build an incubator for my planned chicken project - and I am on the search for eggs!

    My 5 year old daughter, an only child, is going to start school in about a week and a half!!!! She has been in preschool but I think I'm having some anxiety about her starting school - she's growing up! [​IMG] She is a shy child, and I am worried about how she will do in a new school - so I am turning to chickens to ease my worries!!! I don't want to get more animals than we can keep up with (and I already have a ton of animals). However the thought of incubating eggs is so amazing. It is my vice, to bring more chickens into the world. [​IMG]

    Anyone else have their chickens for therapy?

    yep! Nothing more relaxing than watching 2 hens get in a 'fight' over a cockroach. [​IMG]

    Stress cannot exist in the presence of four hens battling it out over a fat, juicy grub.
