    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I had some bantam Buff Cochins when I was a kid and my kids have raised meat chickens the past two years in 4-H.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We do not currently have any chickens.

    (3) What breeds do you have? None

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I found it through Google when trying to find information on raising meat chickens.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I love anything outdoors related: hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, etc. I also enjoy building things.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My wife and I have two kids. They primarily raise rabbits for 4-H and some ARBA shows, but they have raised meat chickens as well. My daughter has decided that she is done with chickens, but my son has decided he wants to raise some bantams. I will be posting in other areas with questions about breeds and where to find some.

    Thanks!
