    Hello everyone,

    Just joined, and thank you for the warm welcome. Let me answer some of your questions.


    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    growing up, we had chickens for eggs, we had one that ended up being 100 years old ( kidding) but she was a senior. We even have her foot steps on a fresh cement walkway we had put in when I was a kid. So I am not new to chickens, but I am very new to chickens

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?

    I have four, cute little guys.

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    Breed? I was hoping you experts can tell me, the person I bought it form said they were Americana or Auracanas.


    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    I found out about BYC by all the questions I was googling, you guys are THE chicken people.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?


    Hobbies, I love languages, I speak 5, i play the guitar, I love cook, i love animals, we have a cat, a dog and 2 Finch birds. I love gardening, I have an organic veggie and fruit garden. I love soccer, i love to travel. And my number one hobby, if I can call it that, is spending time with my wife :)

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

    I come from a big family, my wife is an only child,:) we grew up with animals, my dad was a Shepperd growing up in the high mountains of Ethiopia, he hearded sheep's, goats and even cattle's, and used donkeys to transport things.
    Been in the states for 20+ years, and I feel I am losing my roots, I miss animals and eating from the land, and enjoying nature.
    Hence the chickens. Looking forward to chatting with y'all.

    Thank you all for your warm welcome!

    I need your help on my 3 week old chick, she is one of four who is not doing very good. She hardly walks, maybe two steps at the most, and very wobbly at that. yesterday I separated her from the flock, I gave her some Electrolytes, and added some almonds to her food. But still having issues walking. I am worried, poor thing. I need suggestions from my chicken family.

    Sincerely,

    Noah
