    Hello, my name is Amanda and I am new to the world of chickens. It's all Barnes and Noble's fault. There I was, minding my own business, looking for a good book on backyard veggie gardens when i saw a table they had set up titled Modern Homestead. Well, there was my veggie book, but also... what's this? Living With Chickens... well that sounds cool. I got the book on chickens and left the veggie book. I am so hooked! I went to my city building at the beginning of this week and although there are laws against livestock, they define it as cows, sheep, pigs, horses and goats.- it's says nothing about poultry or fowl. So I am counting chickens under domesticated animals, so I will just make sure to follow the limit on them, and I am not going to keep a rooster.
    So now I am researching coop designs and breeds. I hope to start on the coop soon and order my chicks.
    I am looking forward to learning lots here!

    Well shoot, I guess I could read first and answer the questions...

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    This one I answered in my post.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I have none yet, but I am planning on 3-4 all hens.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Looking at Buckeyes, Faverolles and a couple others. I plan on starting with one breed.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Google is my friend.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Oh man, I scrapbook, make cards, various altered art, some clay work, i make soap and like to cook.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I live with my hubby of 7 years, I have 2 daughters, one is 2 the other 6 months. I work for a major bank-bleh, but it pays the bills. I am also in school for Art Education, I have one very large cat and one poor dog that is so far down in the pecking order. I hope he will be able to handle having 4 chickens rank above him, lol. We live in an older neighborhood, with a tiny postage stamp yard that I am really wanting to make start working for us as opposed to the other way around. I think that's about it. [​IMG]
