Hello everyone!

i'm an extreme newbie and trying to absorb any and all info that is chicken to try and catch up to speed and give my chickens the best home possible.

(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
Extremely new. I "rescued" 4 baby chicks that were being given away at an Easter egg hunt to children that were attending the party :(

(2) How many chickens do you have right now? 4

(3) What breeds do you have? I have no idea! The gentleman having the Egg Hung bought them at a feed store. I have to say, I've never been to a feed store, so I can't even pretend to know what kind of chickens these little babies are.

(4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I ran across this website when researching a quality chicken coop.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies? I breed canaries and maintain a 93 gallon freshwater, heavily planted fish aquarium.

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I'm a stay at home mom and run a household that has 3 kids under the age of 10, 3 dogs, 50 or so fish, 10 canaries... and now 4 chickens!

G'Day from down under Popcorn Winky :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 ;)

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