Hey y'all. I am new to the group :-)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I decided to use the template y'all suggest, so here goes..............

 

(1)  Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

 

Well, yes and no.  I had helped my FIL with his chickens, but never owned any of my/our own.  We purchased our chickens in March of this year.  

(2)  How many chickens do you have right now?

 

We have 5 hens and 1 rooster.  We plan on 6-8 more in the Spring. :-)

(3)  What breeds do you have?

 

3 Reds (1 rooster and 2 hens) and 3 Leghorns (all hens)

(4)  How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

 

Since we are new to raising chickens on our own we do alot of researching online and I found your website, which I think is phenomenal.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

 

We are outdoors people and love animals.  Gardening, biking, visiting State and National Parks here in Texas.  Schlitterbahn and the river in the summer, football in the fall and winter. :-)  GO COWBOYS (yes, I know we suck right now, but we get Romo back in 2 weeks :-)  AND SPURS.............YEEHAW!!!!


(6)  Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

 

My husband and I have been married for 27 years, and we have 2 children...........a son that is 21 (and the main chicken caretaker.  He has Aspergers, very high functioning, and this is what gets him out of the house and doing things), and a daughter that is in middle school.  We have 2 dogs, Emily and Diamond, (we are foster failures.......... twice LOLOL), 1 cat - Stitch, a guinea pig - Dallas and a fish tank full of fish.  OH, and about 20 deer that come up each evening to visit ;-).  See, we love animals and the outdoors!!!  I am a stay at home mom with a small cleaning business, but am looking for something else to do.  We are from the Great State of Texas!!!

 

Can't wait to get to know people and learn from everyone else.  So far, we LOVE chickens.  I had no idea they had such personality and our 2 reds follow us around like our dogs do.  I am so glad we decided to invest in them, because they are a joy to have around...........well, except for the nice little droppings they leave everywhere they go.

 

Looking forward to chatting with everyone.

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You have a very good and thorough introduction. :o) Don't feel bad about using the template. I wish a lot more new members would use it. We get lots of one line introductions (sometime one word introductions) where we learn absolutely nothing about the new members. X2 on NorthFlChick; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
