3) try to find as many ways as possible to say "chicken" or "eggs" when talking to ANYONE or say phrases in conversations like "don't put all of your eggs in one basket" and other phrases in EVERY CONVERSATION

Too funny!

I have this symptom: I must take pictures of every egg that is unusual--very large, very small, odd shaped, odd shelled or extra pretty.

I also insist that my husband and anyone else who happens to come visit look at them and admire them.

Starting a collection of "fart" eggs (the tiny eggs laid by hens on occasion). Until you realize that is a really disgusting thing to do since they could explode. Throw them out to only start collecting all over again.

What about egg "shopping" such as on eBay and Eggbid even though you know you are wasting a ton of money you desperately need for something else? You should keep a list of these symptoms and add the to the medical books, DMS............

When you go out and sit in front of all your flock and talk to them telling them that egg production is down and who is not doing their job.

Then at night singing them to sleep before you close them in for the night.

Not me.....my hubby. LOL:lol:
