    Hi!

    1. Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes, new as can be lol we bought 6 chicks from my son's school (hatched in 2nd grade classrooms) in November & 6 more 1 week later from a local farm&ranch supply. 5 of the 6 we bought at the store lived.

    2. How many chickens do you have right now?
    11

    3. What breeds do you have?
    Of the ones from school was a RIR rooster, 2 white hens (leghoen maybe?), I think 2 are RIR and I'm not sure about the 6th. The other 5 are New Hampshire Reds.

    4. How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Google

    5. What are some of your other hobbies?
    I dye my own yarns & fibers for spinning, spin, crochet, and read. As well as kill things in my garden :p
    6. Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have 2 kids, 1 boy, 1 girl and live on a small ranch in Central Texas with them and my husband. My mother in law moved in last October. We have dogs, cats, horses and........ chickens! *gasp* ;)
