    Nope you didn't need them but you will. Then more and more. They ain't kidding when they say chickens are like potato chips laced with crack. BTW Welcome to BYC.

    Of COURSE YOU NEEDED them. It's perfectly normal. Who wouldn't need them? No one here will tell you any different, you're doing fine. I have some spare delawares growing out, want some?

    Bwahahahhaahahhahaha we're all NORMAL.

    Well here we go again:/ after yesterdays disaster and losing 2 of my hens I have found replacements they are 1 Americana hen that is laying and since I don't have a rooster I am getting an Americana roo too. Even though my neighbor's mutt killed my hens he is too cheap to fork over the cash for the ones I want and since he found some hens for eight bucks that is all he will give me. So I have to pay the rest.[​IMG]

    GOD! Everyone here is sooooo telling the truth!

  8. If it wasn't so easy to become a chicken parent via adoption from the feed store, a mailing from the hatchery, a present from a friend, a incubator full of eggs or a bid at an auction no one would own a flock.

    It is just too easy and lets face it, they are easy to care for and they give you a lot in return.

    It is spring, lets welcome our feathered friends.

    Quote:Chickens are classified as livestock, so in most places a dog that kills them is fair game to be shot. I would make sure your neighbor knows that before he lets the dog run on your property again... It sounds like he's trying to make things right though.

    Enjoy your birds! Of course you need them!
