New member in Minnesota

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

(1)  Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?  My first experience with chickens was watching my neighbors hens when they went on vacation and picking eggs. I loved how they hens greeted me with their clucks, and I was hooked. I started my own flock with 3 Columbian Wyandotte chicks last July. They have grown up to be wonderful, friendly girls. One went broody 3 weeks ago, so I got 5 chicks for her to raise. She is doing a great job with the babies. I am surprised how quickly they are growing and changing. They imprinted with their new mom right away. They are in the house until the weather warms up a bit.


(2)  How many chickens do you have right now? 8

(3)  What breeds do you have? 3 Columbian Wyandotte hens, 2 Ameracaunas, 1 silver-laced Cochin, 1 blue Cochin, 1 silver-gray Dorking.
 
(4)  How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? My neighbor's daughter raved about this web site. I have been lurking for a long time but am happy to be a true member now.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies? I love collecting antiques, gardening, and shopping at second-hand shops for treasures.

(6)  Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have one husband who is not involved with the chickens but does enjoy the omelets I make. My baby is a 10-year-old female boxer. I am a medical transcriptionist who works from home.

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

Welcome to BYC! frow.gif

It is such a wonderful thing to watch a mother hen interact with her babies. I'm glad she adopted them without a hitch.

Good luck to you!

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
