    When you go out to collect eggs and you know by color and shape exactly which one laid certain eggs and tell them thank you for being such good girls and giving you such pretty and delicious eggs.

    When I go out to collect eggs, I say "have you done your eggly duty yet, girls?" and if there isn't an egg from each girl I say "one more egg, girls!" (I'm trying to get them laying in their house, because somebody was doing it in the bushes, so they have to stay in the house and run until they've done their "business")

    (should this thread be renamed to "name your brand of crazy when it comes to your chooks"?[​IMG])

    Totally! All I want is one of those t-shirts that say "My chickens love me."

    You know you love your chickens when....
    - you go dumpster diving for louvered doors to use as shutters on the run to keep out the wind and rain
    - you add another 800 sq ft to the outdoor run so your SIX hens will have more room!
    - you won't go to the beach with your husband because your regular chicken-sitter is not available
    - you make a poster of them complete with names and photos and hang it on the coop
    - you keep a spreadsheet by hen of egg production (forced to stop or go in for counseling!)
