    Ever since I got my first chicks about a month ago, I've lost interest in most regular activities in my life, including my job. All I want to do is stay home and be with my chickens. Is this normal?

    Haha. I've already asked my husband if I can be a stay-at-home chicken mom and he said "no."

    I wonder what it says about my job and about my life that I'd rather be home shoveling duck poop than at work.

    Omg I know right? First thing in the morning, I run out to say good morning and feed and water. Many trips outside to talk to them. Then last thing at night they get their goodnight song I made up when our first batch ever were spending their first night with us.

    LOL You're crazy. :p

    I hope my chickens start loving me soon. Right now I go into their new coop and they act like I'm the overbearing mother invading their privacy. They hate it when I hold them and try to kiss them. My husband says I smother them. So maybe if I go into the coop and pretend not to notice them then they'll like me more? Reverse psychology!
