    I just put my 9wk old chicks in their coop from the basement and felt a great relief. My coop is 10x12 and my daughter kept telling me I needed more because I only had 11. HAD is the key word. I went to the local feed store today to get just one cattle panel and returned home with 11 more pullets to make an even 22.
    Now here we go again...

    Do you think this is a sickness? [​IMG]

    Don't feel bad, don't beat yourself up... I have 6 little banties, and my husband asked me last night when i was going to get some more.

    Ironically, we are going to a swap meet tomorrow, and I hear that there are silkies....I can't wait...

    Ah it is a disease of the worst kind... fuzzybuttitis. There is no cure...deal with it. LOL There are no support groups either. We will however provide support in your addiction and suggest that you go get more. [​IMG]

    I have 30 in a 12 x 12 coop and they have plenty of room. At night they sleep in little groups all over the place.
