    2 Isbars
    1 Swedish Flower
    1 Maran
    1 Golden Spitshauben (featured in avatar)
    I also have 6 Mille Fluers I bought at 2 weeks old.
    The Swedish Flower is 1/4 blind as she hatched early and can't fully open an eye. She is my special needs bird. Side note does anyone know if that can be fixed? They are about 8 weeks old now and man do I LOVE them. I have PTSD and I love sitting with them. I they calm me down. They are soooo spaztastic! They even crawl into my lap to sleep sometimes. I first got into them because I was sick of store eggs but they snagged me hard. I am addicted. To the whole process. Hatching them, watching them spaztasticly grow!! I catch myself looking at hatching eggs on Ebay all the time. I have 11 birds now and they are only 8 weeks. Lolol
    When I sit outside I look like one of those pigeon covered homeless people in films only with chickens. :lau:lau
    To bad I can't register chickens as therapy animals. I have a fear of having to move and get rid of them. They really do mean that much to me. I researched thoroughly before buying the eggs but there is always more to learn and I found myself learning alot of out here. So I joined! Thanks for all future guidance. Here are some of my favorite pictures through my chicken adventures.

    Thank you both for your replies. I am trying to find a medical section to ask about my special needs baby. I can't find it but I know there must be one. Can you help me out? I would like to put it in the right spot.

    Your chickens a beautiful and cute!
    I know, store eggs stink. I am planning on doing an article about store eggs vs. farm eggs, so I am trying to gathered much info as I can, so, what don't you like about them?
    I heard somewhere that you can list chickens as therapy birds, but that might not be true.

    Well it is just a birth defect and not a medical emergency. Is that the right spot? She just has an eye that wont fully open. It is fully functional other than that and is certainly no emergency.

    Between the massive cruelty in factory farming and how they "prepare" them I decided I was done with store eggs.
