    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I got a present almost a month ago of 3 chicks. Still trying to figure it out the breed and gender. I think I have 2 girls and a boy Orpington, maybe?

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I was looking for a coop, something easy or small to build by myself. I'm a DIY person. I love the white and yellow 3x6 ("South City"), and . I love animals, but I can't have more than 4 hens where I live. So, I need a small chicken coop/run plan to build.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? cakes and pastries, reading, bicycle, walk, and cook

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Name is Alma and I'm 55 retired. Move to Central Florida 21 years ago from the Caribbean. Have 3 adults kids, a husband, female cockatiel, and a boy Toy Yorkie. Recently had to euthanize my Schnauzer due to cancer...

    It's such an awful thing to lose a pet. My dogs are my heart and soul. We had to put down our yellow lab two months ago, so I feel for you. :hugs

    That's pretty exciting about your gifted chickens! I wish you much luck and joy!
