Hello From Northern California!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey there!  I'm Jess.  Because my creative juices aren't flowing well today, I am using the template given (which I am ever so thankful for)!  I'm looking forward to meeting you all in the forums!

 

 

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

       I am new to chickens and ducks.  I raised some for a livestock nutrition class, but they weren't mine, so I couldn't reap the benefits.  We started our new feather family in February 2016.

(2)  How many chickens do you have right now?
       
We had 8 chicks when we first started, but sadly after a month, they were killed by one of our dogs.  We recently got 10 more chicks and then 4 ducklings.

 


(3)  What breeds do you have?

      For hens we have 2 Gold Laced Wyandottes, 2 Light Brown Leghorns, 2 Rhode Island Reds, and 4 New Hampshire Reds.

      We also have 4 Khaki Campbells, but when we are able to identify what gender they are, we'll have to rehome one or two of them.



(4)  How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
       I was looking up information for the new flock and this was one of the top sites Google had on the search.  

 


(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

       I am a filmmaker, photographer, horse trainer, reader, writer, gamer...basically I'm an everything enthusiast!



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

       I live with my parents and brother on a farm.  We have three dogs, four cats, two horses, and of course our newest members, the featherkids.  I'm a media operations specialist at a company nearby.  I make promotional videos and also design ads for events the company hosts.  I graduated from film school December 2015.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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

Thank you, and this site has been an immense help so far.  Trust me, we reinforced everything to keep her out.  We looked away for one minute, and that's all it took.  We're not very pleased with her still.  Stubborn little brat she is!
