    I was reading a thread yesterday where someone asked if it was a good idea to start chicks this late in the season. Everyone jumped aboard and said,"Of course!" "No problem!" "You'll have spring layers!"

    "We're all chicken addicts here," they said. "Of course you need more chicks," they said.

    And then I started looking at all the cute photos of little fuzzy-butts.

    I just placed an order for 25 chickies from McMurray.

    I'm hopeless... [​IMG]

    The first step is admitting the problem...

    TWELVE STEP RECOVERY PRINCIPLES FOR
    CHICKENADDICTION



    STEP 1: We admitted we were powerless over our chicken addictions and our compulsion to
    have more of them. As a result our schedules have become unmanageable.

    STEP 2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity,
    and his name is NOT Dear Husband or Dear Wife.

    STEP 3: We made a decision to turn our life with poultry and will to have more of them over to
    the care of God.

    STEP 4: We made a searching inventory of precisely how many chickens we have at present
    and how many square feet of coops and runs we currently own. (roll eyes here)

    STEP 5: We admitted to God, ourselves, spouse and BYC’rs the exact amount of our
    overcommitment.

    STEP 6: We are entirely ready to cull all the unnecessary chickens from the flock to make
    room for upgrading our stock.

    STEP 7: We humbly asked God to help us choose which ones to cull and which ones to keep.

    STEP 8: We made a list of all the good breeders and helpful friends that have encouraged us
    in our quest for breeding excellence.

    STEP 9: We made a plan to reciprocate to each of these people for all the good things they
    have done to help us happily overindulge in our chickaddiction. We also commit to
    ‘pay it forward’ to any new convert to chicken raising by being generous and helpful
    where ever possible.

    STEP 10: We continued to take a personal inventory of how much money and time we spend
    with our feathered children, and vowed to give our spouses and children equal time.

    STEP 11: We prayed that God would keep our families and flocks safe from predators
    and disease, and for greater knowledge of His will for our happiness.

    STEP 12: Having had a truly delightful experience in keeping chickens, we promise to carry
    the message to others and work tirelessly to help others become as hopelessly
    addicted to chickens as we are.
