    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I bought my first chicks just a few days ago.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Currently I have 7 chicks.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I have two Barred Plymouth Rocks, two Buff Orpingtons, and 3 Speckled Sussex (at least that’s what I ordered)

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I found you on the internet.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I love to garden and read.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    I am married with three children. We have two dogs, a cat, and a tank full of fish.

    G'Day from down under Faustina14 :frowWelcome and Congratulations! :clap

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
