    Hi all,

    Great forum and website. Here's a bit about me... Thought I'd use the template...

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    - Got my first two hens about 2 years ago, I did at one point have 4 but back down to 2 now following an incident with a fox and an egg bound hen :(

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    - Just the two but looking to expand my run and convert my shed into a big chicken house

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    - Two hybrids, a Black Sussex and a Rhode Rock. I did have an Amber and a Silver Laced Wyandotte Bantam too.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    - Been reading the forum and website for the past year or so getting tips

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    - Football, gardening, DJing - I co-host a radio show

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    - No other pets, just me and my wife with a big garden which I'd like to have full of chickens soon!

    I love chicken maths and it seems like you have the plans and the space to go crazy! Good for you!

    Best wishes

    Please check out the predator section - the fox got fed, he will be back.
