(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We are very new....have only had them a very short time. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Currently we have 5 hens and one rooster (3) What breeds do you have? We were told that they are Black Australorps (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Internet search (5) What are some of your other hobbies? We are just starting a small farm...so our "hobbies" right now include, learning all there is to know about back yard farming. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My husband and I live on 2+ acres currently. We have lived here for over 6 years. But are looking to purchase a larger area of land for farming. Looking for any advice/suggestions, etc that you may have to offer. Thanks in advance.
