    Hello everyone, I've been lurking around your forums for a while soaking up all your wisdom! I first want to say: Thank you all for being awesome! I've found answers to questions I didn't even know I had!


    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I'm new to chickens, getting ready to get my first chicks. I think I'm going to go the hatching route for my first chicks!

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    None - I want to make sure I have the brooder done and the coop at least started before I order my eggs :)

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I'm looking at Dorkings and Wyandottes to help preserve their breeds, but I do want some Easter Eggers too!

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    When I got the chicken bug I searched and found this place. I've been lurking around the forums for about two months just reading everything I can.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    I crochet, knit, tat, garden, bike ride, run, and play with my dogs (who will need Chicken Sensitivity Training [​IMG]).

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have two bearded collies, and they are my babies. I actually moved out to a house on 10 acres to accomodate my need for vast amounts of gardening room (in part because I want to grow a small orchard, too), their need to run, and eventually having some small livestock. I'm a software engineer by occupation, so I'm an odd one.


    Anyway, I'm happy to be here! I hope I can contribute something back to this place :)
