    When the high point of your day is getting home to HUG YOUR CHICKEN!!! And make sure that their head is scratched at least once a day since they only have one good leg!

    My little PJ's suffered a broken leg and has become such a pet, giving her a big ol hug is the first thing I do EVERY DAY when I get home from work!! And I give her head rubbies because she lubs them!

    When there are meal worms in your bedroom closet making creepy crawly noises.

    When you knit sweaters for them so they stay warm while free ranging in the snow.

    When you go grocery shopping and there is more in the cart for the chickens than there is for your family.

    When one is slightly under the weather she is welcome in the home in a special little chicken pin. And you know you love chickens when all your friends post chicken posts on your Facebook wall lol [​IMG]

    When your silkie has been turned into a house pet because she's getting picked on.

    When you take her out to free range when it's cold and bring her back in to put her on the electric blanket to warm her up.

    When it gets cold and you bring your teeny bantam into the house... and then you are worried she will be lonely so put her next to your bed. [​IMG]
