    I'm seriously thinking about picking up a couple more chicks. I think our co-op is getting some more in soon... I have 19 silver spangled hamburgs and one lakenvelder (I am more and more sure) and neither of those breeds are "people lovers". Those are my tick patrol- and I'm sure they'll be great at it- but it would be so nice to have just one or two that are more like pets and who will enjoy some affection and company.

    I see all these pictures on here and read stories of chickens who are sweet and like being around people and I think "I want that too!"

    hahahahaha... I'm off to call the co-op and see if their chicks are in...

    oh trust me they'll grow to be people lovers as long as you smother them with treats & spend alot of time with them when they're young! [​IMG]

    There is no vaccine for chick-addiction. Incubation is just the second level. Additional or larger coop building is the third. At least now you know your path....

    If someone invents a chick-addiction rehab center, BYC will have it's own corridor... no, it's own "wing" [​IMG]

    fzouk, you are welcome to PM me if you don't find what you are looking for. I may have a couple of "friendly chicks" for you, and I am in your neighborhood.
