(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am completely new to chickens! My mama had a few after I moved out but I never had to take care of them. They were gifts from my brother who picked 1 hen and 3 roosters! Needless to say they were all very mean (2) How many chickens do you have right now? None, but the plan is to start our flock in the spring when we are settled on our new farm. (3) What breeds do you have? I plan to have RIRs. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Google (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Homesteading, photography, hiking/camping, reading. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I’m married to Paul. We have two sons: Tyler (9) and Jacob (1.) No other pets but we plan to raise some goats eventually and the boys get to pick out their dog this summer.
