    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I first had chickens about 40 years ago in 4-H.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Right now I have 8 birds. 2 Red sex link, 2 black sex link, 2 White laced Wyandotte, and 2 white chickens. They were from the pullet bin at the Tractor Supply.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Red sex link, black sex link, Wyandotte, white chicken maybe a Leghorn?

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    My son and I were trying to find out what this one phrase the two black sex link hens say. We found this website in a search.

    Hippolyta and Diana Prince are Amazons from Wonder Woman. These two birds are huge compared to the others. My son thought that Amazon was a kind of chicken. LOL

    Cat Baloo I remember that song. Something like "she's mean & rotten through and through." No offense. I have no idea where that came from.
