    I am a step-mom to a 16 yr old teenage boy. Need I say more?

    He is going through an awful teenage phase, where its a struggle to get him to do anything, let alone clean up after himself! The chickens are a great distraction.

    We have periods where he gives me the silent treatment because I've said no to something, and life goes on with no help from me when hes irresponsible.

    I recently purchased 6 chicks from the store, to add to my flock. He took a short notice of them, before going back to ignoring me again. And hasn't said much to me since....and its been quite a few days...

    Then I found a rare breed from a local breeder, and couldn't resist buying an additional 4 chicks.

    I came home the other day, and in the silence of the living room, I heard my son say (in calm, questionable voice):

    "Jesus, the chickens keep multiplying!"
