(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? In high school I started dating a girl that lived on a farm. I talked her Dad into getting chickens! We had Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, Araucanas, and silkies! The silkies were probably our favorite ones! I fell in love with Bantams! I ended up marrying the girl and now.... 10 years and 4 children later, we are getting our first flock of chickens of our own! (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 0. but I just built a small chicken coop in the back yard and we are ordering 10 little bantam chickens to come this march. (3) What breeds do you have? none yet. But we ordered a huge variety.. all bantams (silkie, frizzle cochin, brahma, golden sebright, silver sebright, quail antwerp, araucana, barnevelder, partridge wyandotte, white crested black polish) (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I was at the local feed store and saw a friend that told me this was the best place to get info for new chicken owners (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Healthcare! I am a chiropractor! I love sports and outdoors of all kind (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. Happily married with 4 beautiful children (the youngest is 3 weeks old and my wife thinks I am nuts for choosing right now to get chickens!) We have a Rat terrior dog that is a handful and it will be interesting to get it to leave the chickens alone (and suggestions on that will help) and then 3 Beta fish! Way way excited to be on here and learn more from everyone!
