    OK, I recently realized that the part of my brain that loves chickens (I love the colors/variety) also loves fabric and flowers because of the the colors/patterns/variety. I also love fancy needlework like crazy quilting. What does that say about me? Any of you chicken lovers find that to be true of yourselves? I think it's all about color. Although, I have been a bird person all my life. Just curious.

    Never know... could be... the study of neural anatomy and the brain is intense... Let's just pretend and say there is one chicken section and it will be much easier to live with...

    *twitches from memories on superficial study of the brain...*

    That is a very good question and would undoubtedly explain the reason I wake up each morning with chickens on the brain and can't seem to go very far through the day without pondering my whole flock, current and the ones to be. I am drawn to chickens in all aspects of my life as well, place mats, knicknacks and artwork. Hum, that explains it.

    Lately I've been thinking along similar lines... like maybe there is something in the drinking water! Why is all this chicken stuff happening? tee hee

    Years of intensive research on my very own brain has been done on this very subject, and here are the results.
    (well, to clarify the above statement: 'Years'=nanoseconds, 'intensive'=I did this without my first cup of coffee, 'research'=huh?)
    Without further ado, I introduce you to the 'chicken section' of the brain :

    Throw a "Horse" section in there and that would be me, for sure!

    I also have a horse section. I was "horsey" kid. Haven't been on a horse in 20 years. I rode English back then. Went out west this past summer and stayed at a horse ranch in Wyoming. Did two trail rides. It felt great to be in the saddle again. Like comin' home. I hope to get "horsey" here again now that we live on acreage.

    That's great! I love it! I have noticed that I have to do all my BYC-ing way before bedtime, because if I'm on here too late, there is too much chicken stuff going round and round in my head and I stay awake for hours thinking about chickens, and even dream about them. I didn't want to tell my fam; they think I'm bordering on obsessed already!!![​IMG]
