    When your dinning room table can't be used because that where the brooder is sitting and half the bench space in the kitchen is taken up by the incubator! [​IMG]

    You know your a poultry owner when you suddenly realize, during the meeting, you have chicken poop still left on your black stiletto pumps.

    It has happened to me [​IMG]

    My guest room had a kiddie pool on the bed with pine wood chips and lots of chicks in it.I also take a sheet and put it on the bed so the chicks can run around on it.

    You know you are a poultry owner when...
    ...The majority of your daily thoughts are ways to improve the coop.
    ... You go to the grocery store and while you are in the produce, you say to yourself "i bet the chickens would like that."
    I'll try to think of more

    Find that any polystyrene you have lying around has been pecked to bits and all outdoor plants and shrubs have a chicken wire cage around them [​IMG]

    You know you're a chicken addict when :
    *your favorite shade garden gets fenced in with a dog kennel to become a new chicken run
    *your spare bathroom sink stays clogged with pine shavings
    *while grocery shopping you hunt for reduced produce that your chickys will devour
    *your kitchen counter stays cluttered with vitamins, waterers, small treat dishes, etc
    *your dishwasher is loaded with more chicken dishes than human dishes
    *your diningroom no longer exists--its a hatchery now
    *your favorite form of relaxation is watching the antics of your chickens
    *your morning conversation with your husband begins "Sheba has gone broody, Latoya has started laying again..."
    *you cook more for your chickens than you do for your husband
    *there isn't a pair of shoes left in the house that doesn't have a trace of pooh on them
    *there are more photos in your wallet of chickens than children
    *the postmaster keeps your phone number on a sticky attached to the front desk
    *BYC is your home page
