    The 12 steps of chicken addiction.

    Step 1 takes place at the feed store and goes OHHHHH aren’t they cute!
    Step 2 can I get one?
    Step 3 you can’t get just one because she needs a friend
    Step 4 oh look they have ducks too
    Step 5 takes place on line or from catalogs when you begin placing large orders
    Step 6 you build your own incubator
    Step 7 one incubators not enough so you get a second
    Step 8 your spouse decides to open a backyard hatchery
    Step 9 you have more than 100 birds from more than 6 species
    Step 10 your weekly feed bill is more than your weekly grocery bill
    Step 11 your spouse has to quack or cackle to get your attention
    Step 12 your spouse either gives up and gets involved or files for divorce
    Step 13 you allow non frozen poultry into the kitchen or dining room
    Step 14 your in denial that you have a problem
