    Your family calls you to make fun of the fact that you said "roo" instead of rooster and continually asks you "how is your rooooo?!". (high pitched voice) Rooo is such a funny word. I want to buy a rooooo! I wonder what would have happened if I had actually said "Well, he's under a year old so technically he's a cockerel, so the shortened term is.. yeesh, nevermind"
    (My cousins did this to me last week, while my sister was visiting the rest of the family in NY) I haven't spoken to a lot of them in over 10 years but they call to make fun of my for having chickens. I think they forgot that I come from the same place they did!

  111. You might be a chicken addict when...you have to make sure the girls are all out of the nest boxes before putting treats out. Need more chickens...not enough colors for the eggs. Could be a problem since we have seven now and are overflowing for just the two of us.

  113. I agree and do so many of these but find lately I spend more time with my chickens and am always talking about them more than my children or grandchild! Text everyone when my first chick hatched this week "I just had a baby" haha confused several family members!

  114. We knew we were addicts when my wife asked for chickens, so of coarse I built a coop and got her 5 pullets, then for her birthday I bought her 34 baby chicks and you would have thought i bought her a 5ctw diamond ring..... she was thrilled!!!

  139. You spend most of your time overwhelming your family and friends with updates about the 'Micro flock'. And you rush home, put off the to-do list to be able to hangout and feed them yogurt from a spoon. Lastly you catch yourself hunting CL for those 'perfect' pullets to add to your flock. I blame you Kathy Mormino! :)

I realized I was a chicken addict when all of my friends on Facebook said they hadn't seen one picture of my kids in months, while I had been posting picture after picture of my chickens!  And to make it all better, I started my chickens their OWN Facebook page just for them!  :)  That's totally normal, I'm sure.

  148. How about when the basic incubator still isn't to your satisfaction, you tweak it until it is just perfect for your little eggers!  If a momma is off her nest too long you freak out and bundle the eggs up in your pockets, shirt pouch, hat and rush them inside to the incubator, which has always been on just in case of emergencies like this!  One of my comments got on the first list, do I get a sticker?

  154. My 12 year old granddaughter is the chicken addict. She read every book (including "chickens for Dummies") in the library on chickens before ordering her first chicks...to arrive on her birthday...before she had built the chicken coop. While her family was building their own house, they had to stop what they were doing to build the coop.
