    I think I have a serious problem. I got my 104 chicks yesterday 26 BO, 26 RIR, 26 BR and 26 Isa's. Next week I get our 20 guineas. That's ALOT of chicks. Everyone posting pictures here makes me want to get more. This addiction HAS to stop [​IMG] . I know our TSC is getting chicks in the next couple of days. That is what they told me anyways, but I think I need to stay clear from there for the next month at least. I even asked at our feed store today if they get chicks in, thank goodness she said no. I am not sure I could resist the temptation to bring in more chicks. I want silkies and old english bantams and I am sure there is more. I really need to hold back.
    Is there a pill?

    **slowly stands up** My name is Robyn and I am addicted to chicks. [​IMG]**sits back down**

    There is currently no cure for this affliction. It is a terrible thing, but you're in good company on this site - we all have the same disease.

    I know less than 0 about silkies but I happened to see a couple in the chick bin at Atwoods a couple of days ago and now I can't stop thinking about them. We're addicted to ChickCrack!
