You Might Be A Chicken Junkie If…

You Might Be A Chicken Junkie If…

Ever  wondered if you are a little too fond of your flock? When we decided to get a few chickens for our acreage, we never dreamed that we would be overrun with poultry within 6 short months.

If you have more chickens than you need and just seem to be acquiring more…  or if everyone in the neighborhood calls you when a chicken needs a new home, then perhaps you should consider this:

You might be a Chicken Junkie if…

  1. You have a chicken clucking or crowing as the ring tone for your phone.
  2. Your friends and family make excuses and leave when you start chatting about your flock.
  3. All your chickens have names and they know who they are.
  4. You can’t chase your chickens, cause they aren’t scared of you. (You can just call them though.)
  5. You find yourself getting healthier and losing weight. Not from using P90X, but from building, hauling feed and gardening for your peeps.
  6. Your chickens do a better recall than your obedience trained dogs.
  7. You remember your chickens names better than your kids.
  8. You have to borrow money to build more coops. (You’ve used up all the free Craigslist stuff.)
  9. You have to get another refrigerator to keep all the eggs.
  10. You have a chicken in your lap every time you set down.
  11. You make breakfast for your chickens before you feed your spouse. (They love hot oatmeal and scrambled eggs.)
  12. Your chickens tap you on the foot to get your attention.
  13. Your garden has a bigger “Chicken Stuff Area” than the plot you grow your own veggies in.
  14. There are feathers and wood shavings in your car.
  15. You fret about your chickens and can’t wait to get home so you can have “Chicken Time” with them.
  16. Your hens squat in front of you instead of the roosters.
  17. You have chickens waiting at the door every time you open it.
  18. You have a chicken instead of a parrot as a house pet.
  19. You can tell the ancestry of a chicken at a glance.
  20. You can predict the color of a chicken’s egg by looking at it’s ears.
  21. You’re watching chicken videos instead of TV or movies and notice your dog is watching too.
  22. You find yourself catching bugs for your chickens.
  23. People refer to you as the “Chicken Lady”.
  24. Your favorite store is no longer “Stienmart”, for convenience, but Lowes, for chicken building supplies and tools and Tractor Supply, cause other “Chicken Folks” hang out there.

    Knowing some html helps a lot. You can do a WordPress blog without it as long as you keep it simple. You can find a lot of great blog training at http://www.videos.bycenay.com/ Cenay is the best.
