    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes, we are new to chickens, although I did have chickens when I was an early teen. I wasnt much involved in their care. We just got chickens last Sunday.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 10

    (3) What breeds do you have? Barred rock, buff orpington, and cinnamon queen

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Google search for help with chicks

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? All kinds of things- mountain biking, tennis, paddleball, kayaking, hiking, camping, the list goes on.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We live in Michigan. My husband and I have been married for 4.5 years. My stepson, my husband and I have enjoyed collecting animals throughout those 4.5 years. We started with a hamster, then got a Min Pin Rat Terrier named Gracie, then after we moved to our new house we found a white rabbit that was abandoned or lost on our country road, so we took him in and named him Alto..after that we got another puppy who is a sheltie rat terrier named Abner.. I took in my sisters cat, Diamond, because she was moving and couldnt take her.. and now we have 10 backyard chicks! :) Enjoy the pictures :)

    ****I WOULD LOOOOVE TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE'S PETS!

    Two Golden Retrievers, 1 Labrador Retriever and one Min Pin mix just like yours! I'll never know the other half of my Min Pin though because the father was a stray in the neighborhood according to the people I bought her from.
