Thought I would use the form off the sticky! (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Very new, but we are learning like alot of folks on here. For example lesson one: Always get the chickens before building the house! I think it's a law.....pretty sure anyway. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 8 (3) What breeds do you have? Barred Rock's, Red Sex Links, Cherry Eggers, Buff Orpington, Delaware (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Desperately searching for chicken coop plans! (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Working on this darned coop.....not really a hobby. Getting into stained glass. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I'm retired Air Force and just started a second career with the National Park Service as an Information Technology specialist. My wife is a professional cake decorator and has won two national competitions (I'll brag about her).
