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

I’m new to chickens after seriously wanting to raise them for about 7 years. Finally becoming homeowners made it a reality for us. We have 3 week old chicks in the brooder now.

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


(3) What breeds do you have?

These are from TSC, which I hear isn’t great for labeling accurately. But I think we have a couple of Amberlinks, Barred Rock, Isa Brown, and Golden Comet. Two of these chicks are smaller than the others and have feathers all the way down the sides of their feet. Doesn’t look like the pictures I’ve found of these breeds, so wondering...

(4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?

Access to healthier eggs, doing something closer to farm-life

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

I love knitting, kayaking, gardening, painting, bicycling, trying new things.

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

Dog, several cats already. Would have alpaca if the city would let me!

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D

I’ve known about this for 6 years (when I first started researching backyard chickens) and it’s been a great resource.
