    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    Me and Pop (My Grandpa, who recently passed) raised Chickens and guineas when I was little. We just moved further out in the country to 4 acres so I wanted to get back into it and finally we have the room.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?

    We have 11 Chickens 3 pearl guineas and 2 ducks.

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    We have 1 standard turken, 2 banty turkens, 2 sex linked, I can't remember the breed but we got one that lays blue eggs and one that lays green, 1 big red rooster, 1 unknown roo, a blue polish, and one little black and white chick we got from a friend. We also have a blue Swedish duck, a Rouen duck, and 3 pearl gray guineas

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    Just googling for coop plans and other random questions and found BYC kept coming up with good info

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    Working with other animals, fixing/tinkering with computers, meditation...

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    Me and my wife live with my parents that just moved back to Idaho from Hawaii, they wanted to be closer when we have kids. In addition to the Birds we also have a blue quaker, 4 cats, 4 dogs. 3 fish, and a turtle. I am self employed a a yard guy with hopes to expand to computer repair and raising animals

    Thank you and this should be fun!
