But I realized today that i am still calling them 'the chicks'! When does one FINALLY give up and accept they have grown? How many eggs does it take? Because I had my husband so confused this morning it was pitiful. I was talking about what to feed which birds and he said flat out "how many eggs do you need to get before they turn into chickens?" (we haven't had any eggs yet btw...they aren't even 3 months old yet, just LOTS of crowing). He seems to think my inability to refer to them as hens/roos/chickens is some sort of chicken insider info I guess based upon number of eggs laid... So...How many eggs does it take? Does anyone else do this? Or have I lost it finally?
