    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I am new to chickens. I am going to be building my coop this winter and I am going to buy 8 or so chicks in the spring.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    None. I plan to buy about 8.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    None. I plan to buy white leghorns.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Google search for coop designs brought me here.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I enjoy computer and console gaming.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I am married and have a two year old son. I am a software developer.

    I am hoping to find someone nearby who will be selling white leghorn chicks in the spring. That way my chicks will not be have to be shipped to me. I know that it does not hurt the chicks but I am nervous about having day old chick shipped to me in the mail.
