    So this last winter a person gave me 4 silkies, One Roo and 3 hens. The hens got eaten :mad:. Well it got close to spring and I decided to order some chicks and the hubby already had some guineas. Well the chicks are 11 weeks old now and doing quite well. ( I think they are mammoth chickens) [​IMG] So then I go and purchase 5 Royal Palm poults 2 weeks old and in the process also pick up 4 new silky chicks. Then I order 3 magpie ducks (due to arrive friday) [​IMG]. Then I sorta panic and posted some of the original chicks for sale. Well, I got an offer for a trade from someone here and we agreed to meet...LOL See I am completely insane....somebody stop me please !

    [​IMG] I really love it.

    Is that kinda like when you go to the thrift store and drop off a load of junk but then decide to go in "just to look" and leave with a car full of someone elses stuff.... I'm just trying to follow the logic [​IMG]

    I cant imagine the look I must have given here... "Oh!.. Well!, uh.. chickens, you have chickens there I see, uh, wow, thats great?"
    Anyway, shes been keeping me from picking up a 5th.

    My wife doesn't even try to discourage me from getting more or hatching more at this point. She knows I'm hopelessly addicted.

    Where are you? I just hatched MORE chicks and can't possibly keep them ALL! [​IMG] Maybe we should "trade"?

    Do you have a bator? [​IMG] Thats when the insanity really begins...

    My husband has been the the hunthing stores and guns shops a lot recently. I told him what would happen if he came home with another rifle (he's been teaching me to target shot and wants to get into skeet shooting). When we get a larger place where I can legally keep chickens I am going to pick up a batch of chickens every time I go to the feed store. [​IMG] [​IMG] He didn't sound very threatened. [​IMG]
