    Can't use the bathtub for weeks because you have baby chicks in there. (Thank goodness for showers![​IMG])

    when you see a new chicken coop in the back of a pick up truck & you turn around & follow it home & end up seriously late for work!

    You have dedicated Chicken Shoes that sit by the back door! Ok I have two pair now, one is a pair of sandals that I can wear out at night to close the coop and not get my toes pecked at.

    ....when you sit at the dining room table soaking little fluffy butts in warm water and then applying Vaseline (that's when I knew I was a goner! [​IMG])

    you would rather sit outside when it is 104 degrees and watch "the girls" than sit in the air conditioned house and watch TV.

    you go out and rescue the poor rooster who is in "jail" new arrival because he is standing in the rain and not in his cozy coop being him in and dry him off and keep him in the house and start thinking how nice it will be to just keep him in the house until DH takes him back outside and say no way.....

    I am at the gym every morning like clock work and one morning I was there doing leg exercises and when I did the ham string machine and brought my leg up, I realized I had chicken poo on the bottom of my tennis shoe...I laughed to myself, went into the locker room took off my shoes cleaned the bottoms and went back to working out.

    When the sound you go to sleep to and wake up to is soft chirping and trilling of your two 3 month old house silkies in a cat carrier next to the bed. They are to cute to leave outside with the big girls, and they expect to be pampered. [​IMG]

    Westminster, MD scan backyards as you drive, looking for coops and wonder if they're someone on BYC.
    ...your dogs begin to hate you because the chicks get all the primo leftovers. check your shoes and conclude that they're really not THAT poo covered and proceed to walk on your light tan carpeting. spend 1/2 hour cutting up strawberries and grapes into birdie bitesized pieces. analyze a large pile of poo that your husband brought in from the coop to make sure it was normal (it was). spend all spare time on BYC and minimize it when someone comes around so you don't seem THAT obsessed.
