(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I grew up on a farm and we had chickens my entire life. I fed them and gathered eggs, but didn't get very interested until my husband and I got our own farm. Growing up my dad also raised pheasants, turkey, quail and a few peacock. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? I have four chickens and eleven guinea fowl. I am also *hoping* to hatch guinea fowl. My first hatch should be around June 12. (3) What breeds do you have? (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I first saw it through Google while searching for info about hatching guineas, and my friend Brandi recommended it. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I work full time, I farm when I am not at work and I enjoy barrel racing and raising Quarter Horses. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I married, we have one dog (Texas Heeler named Famous) and one cat (an orange stray we found named Rickie). I've got three Quarter Horses, RGS Cisco Kid, RGS Ladys Gingersnap and Wild N Wimpy. I love to barrel race and work on the farm we own. I joined backyard chickens to learn more about hatching and raising guinea fowl. Thanks!
