    I simply can't get off the site. I have been drooling over different incubators. So much so that i have gathered all the supplies except a few to build a Bread Box Bator like MissPrissy. I have coveted other peoples chickens, reveling in the different feather styles and color variations. I have ooh'ed and aahh'ed over fuzzy butts. I have read, with a great deal of dismay, over the losses of chickens due to negligent dog owners and wildlife. My name is Melissa and I am a BYC addict. [​IMG]

    next project...incubating and bantam breeds. [​IMG]

    My name is Beth and I am a chicken-a-holic.

    When I first got chickens I thought I would just have some chickens. Now I am in the same boat as you! I have a chicken breed Wish List, I am buying in incubator in a month or two, and now I have ducks!!!

    We need a 12 step program.

    Well I'm here to tell you that I've been doing this for 42 years now and it don't get any better. Raising poultry! There is no end in sight. You'll always find new and interesting birds. The best advice I can give is to just hold on and enjoy the ride! [​IMG]

    yeah, I have the same problem. And DH wonders why the house is a mess and what I am doing all day......I tell him "Ahhh chickens"

    LMAO
    But I did clean house today, I just take breaks for housework to check the board and go play with the chickens.

    With all the enablers out there, I don't see much hope for me. I simply can't say no.
