    Hey everyone! My name is Krystle. I live in eastern CT (but would do just about anything to move somewhere without a winter).

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Technically I don't have chickens yet. I will be getting the first few tomorrow. Never had chickens before but have been obsessively reading and researching them for about a year now.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Right now - 0. Hoping to have around 10.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Will probably end up with RI reds, Cochin and Plymouth Rocks since that is what my friend has (and she is so graciously giving me a few). The kids really want a couple of EEs so I'm trying to find some around here.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Last year I stumbled across this website via google. Long time lurker!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Gardening and school takes up any speck of free time I have.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I'm married to Chris (10 yr anniversary this yr!) We have an 8 yr old daughter and a 5 yr old son, a rescued Nova Scotia Toller cross - Hope (who tries so desperately to be treated like a child) and 4 rescued cats (my furbabies!!) Megan, Beth, Kevin, and Smokey.
    I'm a stay at home mom/student on the 10 year plan to get a 4 yr degree in nursing. My ultimate goal is to be a women's health nurse practitioner. Maybe I'll be there before I'm 40?

    So, hey everyone! [​IMG]

    Great plan--better than being in your 40's & not persuing your education at all! Chase your dreams...You'd still be 40 either way...
