New to Back Yard Chickens

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

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

          *  No. Had my first chicken when I was a pre-teen.  Been keeping them steady for the past 7+years.  



(2)  How many chickens do you have right now?
          *  I have about 16 or so at the moment.  One setting a nest of 20ish eggs right now. 

  


(3)  What breeds do you have?

          *  I currently have some Rhode Island Reds, and a mix of Marans (not coo-coo).  These are the off spring of ones i purchased several years ago, and are currently a mix.  Im not a breeder.  I get a good quantity and quality of eggs to eat, and the birds are hearty.


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

         *  google result looking for local guinea keets or eggs



(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

         *  got a bunch of them



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

        *  animal family: 2 dogs, several cats, 5-6 guineas (need more), and about 16+ chickens...
