    My extended families have had chickens my whole life. While I've always wanted them, I'm only just now able to join in.

    I don't have any yet, but I'm going to get 4 or 5 once I get the coop built. Looking at Australorp or Barred Rock, or a mix.

    Found site on Google.

    I enjoy spending time with my son, gardening (veggies), and learning to sew.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you are getting into chicken-keeping and what a bonus to have all that family experience to fall back on.

    Best wishes

    Mostly because they're what I'm familiar with already. Why'd you choose yours? :)

    I got mine because that's what people were selling in my area or giving away. I would love to get some Dixie Rainbows though. Someday I will order some. My birds free range during the day and I lock them up at night. :welcome
