    1. You sit down to write out your family's grocery list, and the first thing you put down is chicken feed.

    2. Every time you run around town doing errands, you wonder why you have ended up at a Tractor Supply.

    3. Your chickens' coop is more secure than your family's home.

    4. (a) You have more pictures of your chickens than of your children.

    4. (b) You keep your chickens' pictures in your wallet, so you don't have room for your children's pics.

    4. (c) You can't wait for your children to move out, because then you can afford more chickens.

    5. You have more chicken-shaped ornaments than Santa-shaped ornaments for your Christmas tree. (Um, this is actually TRUE for me... [​IMG])

    6. Your backyard is now one huge, enclosed chicken run.

    7. You come in to work looking tired, and the first thing your coworkers ask you is, how was the hatch last night?

    8. If you see a sign for "Farm Fresh Eggs," you immediately want to pull over and spy on the other person's flock and coop to see if theirs is better.

    9. Your coop has gone through more remodeling than your house.

    10. Your coop cost more than your house.

    When you have a baby monitor in their coop, so you can monitor their safety- I have one!!!

    Also if you have a family photo on your Christmas cards that also includes your favorite chickens!

    You train your chickens to do more tricks than your dog.

    Your chickens have you trained to do anything they want.

    You have a category in the monthly budget called 'Chicken Expenses.'

    You have more saddles for your chickens than you do for your horses.

    You look through "What Shall We Name the Baby?" lists to the hum of your incubator.

    You are willing to look past the distastefulness of catching gooey insects with your fingers in order to provide your feathered friends with tasty delights.

    Nothing but nothing pre-empts your chicken show weekends.

    You file your chickens' nails more often than your own.

    It is not unheard of for the family's Neosporin tube to have a feather stuck to it.

    When someone asks how you're doing and what your family's been up to, and you reply with anecdotes about - - - chickens, of course.
