(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We are brand new chicken owners, purchasing three hens a few weeks ago. An australorp named Jade, an easter egg hen named Ida and a gold-laced cochin named Bootsie. So far, only the Australorp is the only one laying eggs, but the people we purchased them from said they were all laying. Hopefully it's just because they are still adjusting to their new home. (2) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Google When we decided to get chickens, we started looking at pictures of coops.... I must say, I love looking at pictures of everyones coops. I had NO clue that they could be so fancy! (3) What are some of your other hobbies? With 3 kids between the ages of 6-10, our hobbies pretty much revolve around them. (4) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We are married almost 12 years, with three kiddos. We also have two parakeets, two weimeraners, a miniature schnauzer, several fish and three tortoises.
