Hello, just figured I'd introduce myself and answer the suggested intro questions. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We got our first flock of buff orps and black giants almost a year ago (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 15 hens (black oprs, splash orp, buff oro and black giants) and 2 roos one great black giant and a blue orp that is learning from the giant (3) What breeds do you have? umm see above (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? like magic it just happened (5) What are some of your other hobbies? what ever dosent get me into trouble and building things for the chicken coop and run (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. engaged to a wonderful lady, I work for an automotive testing company as a wrench, but I have many hats there. We have 5 cats, 3 frogs, gold fish, soon 1 or 2 leopard geckos, and sooner or later a dog!
