    ... see a worm/bug at work and contemplate how you could take it home for the kids.

    Note: I haven't actually stooped so low as to start taking bugs home from work... yet. But I've certainly stopped in my path and though to myself: that's a nice juicy worm. They'd like it.

    you know your are a poultry owner when BYC is your favorite website, when you talk to your family you start a sentence with I was reading on BYC...............
    You got to the garden hoping to find weeds just so your chickens can have some
    You have your DS's go out on a rainy night with a flash light so they can catch worms to feed to your chickens
    You apologize to your chickens for forgetting to give them their scratch one day
    You spend hours outside watching chicken tv
    you share your lunch, dinner ect with the chickens
    You have more pictures of your chickens then your children on your phone/camera
    Your family calls you the crazy chicken lady

    When you laugh at chicken poo on your /or others head.. instead of saying "Groooossss"
     
  8. when you have out of town guests staying over and you forget to inform them that the guest bathtub is currently the sick bay for a little turkey. and when they ask why there is a turkey in the bathtub you a have genuine moment where you wonder why someone would ask such a perfectly obvious question. i mean, doesn't everyone have turkeys in their bathtubs?

    when you show up to see a friend's band play (after not going out in months) and when everyone says it's good to see you, you respond "Yeah, the birds let me have the night off..."

    when you turn around on the way to work and drive 30 miles back home because you can't remember if you or DW opened the pop door on the hen house.....of course we both always check it before we leave....but what if we didn't???????......i'm sure I did......but what if I didn't?????????? ah heck!!!, I'll drive back and check. To date we've never forgotten, but I've made that trip numerous times JUST TO BE SURE... [​IMG]

    You might be a 'poultry owner' if:

    you find ways to cover all your exposed jewelry with hair or apendages....
