    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Had chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys back in the '70s & '80s .

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Am waiting for chickies to arrive about the 21/22 of this month!!!!!! Ordered 16.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Ordered 5 black sex linked pullets, 5 red sex linked pullets, 5 Delaware x New Hampshires (Indian River) pullets and 1 Delaware rooster.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Found it online while looking for chicks.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Love to hike, kayak, garden (veggies and landscaping) and raise chickens.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    This will be my hubby's first experience with chickens. Even tho' he has a lot of doubts (that's just him being him!), he's right there with doing whatever is needed for
    them. We had shed builder partition off a coop side and put in a chicken door in the 8'x14' shed we bought from him . It was delivered yesterday and is beautiful!!!
    Can't wait for the babies to arrive!!! Will be using one of our dog crates for the brooder....the plastic type that can be separated thru' the middle.

    Love this site!![​IMG] [​IMG]
