    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    We purchased our first 6 chicks in 2013. Since then, we've grown and learned...are still learning!! This year we are trying some new ideas... chicken and rabbit tractors.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    We have just over 50 adult layers, 3 roosters, babies coming on, turkeys, and ducks.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    LOL we like variety in our baskets and cartons! Our main breeds are Barred Plymouth Rocks, Bielefelders, and Ameraucaunas (did I spell that right?!). To add more color, we also buy different breeds from local folks and hatcheries: Wyandottes, Legbars, Black Copper Marans, Partridge Rocks, oh gosh... I've lost track!

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    online search for chicken info. Have been referring to this site since we began. Great source for info!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    right now... LOL farming... We have Highland cattle, vineyard, orchard.

    G'Day from down under WindRanch :frow Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
