    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    For the most part yes. I had chicks as a kid, but always gave them to Grandpa to raise on his farm so this is my first experience at raising them. We got them 3 days ago!

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 12 chicks and 3 kids...thus the MomOf15 [​IMG]

    (3) What breeds do you have? 2 - Barred Rock, 2 - Shaver Reds, 2 - Buff Orpingtons and 6 - white Rocks

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Goggle

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Gardening, walking and spending time with my family.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have three children...2 girls and a boy; 15, 5, and 10 consecutively. We live on 12 acres...all but 2 acres is wooded. I am a graphic designer and my SO is in heating and air conditioning. We also have one cat and one dog both of which are black in color and 16 years of age. The dog is a lab/coon hound mix.

    I'm happy to answer any other questions you may have for me and in the mean time, I'll have a look around cuz I know I have TONS to learn.

    Thanx CoopCrazy, nice to meet you. I must admit now that I actually have the chicks I'm feeling ill-prepared and overwhelmed [​IMG]
