I've been a member for three years but only recently became more active in reading (we just last month took the step from "wanting" to "doing something"). I'm excited! Here's the template- (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes/last friday with more being picked up from Meyer just after Easter. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 2, 3 more coming (3) What breeds do you have? BOs with SS on the way. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I can't remember. I'm sure it came up in the search engine when we first started thinking we'd like to have chickens. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I knit, spin, sew a bit, garden (toms, onions, peas, beans and some herbs). (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I'm an old mom with two toddlers and a grade-schooler. We have a Siberian Huskey and a fiddler crab (thanks, Elementary Science class! ). I'm a SAHM with a plastic-mold-injection-designer husband.
