When a person has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, one of the many things that help them treat it is exposure therapy. Doing the things that bother you the most. So I bought some chickens. I did not jump into it, in fact my husband and I talked long and hard about it. I have trouble with things that might make me sick, poop, bugs, etc. So I am hoping that raising these animals will help me face my fears straight on. I am an animal lover, and am excited about getting started. Has anyone else had any experience with this?
