When you dream about them at night.
When they all have names.
When you feed them special treats.
When you give them baths.
When you take them to a vet.
When you watch them more than the TV.
When you hug and kiss them.
When you tuck them in at night.
When you babysit them from hawks while they free-range.
When you add items just for the chickens to your grocery list.
When they can brighten the worst possible day.
When you find yourself constantly reading about them.
When you are always thinking of expanding your coop and run.
When your children call you a chicken grandma!
