Found this site when I was looking for Coop designs and wow what a great site this is! I have just registered but have been glued to the computer off and on reading the entire site. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? No we have had them in the past and I have always loved my chickens. I got my first chickens when I was about 9 and in 4-H (a very loooooooong time ago)! (2) How many chickens do you have right now? I just recently got a new batch of chicks hatched on 5/19, received 26, but lost one the day after they arrived. (3) What breeds do you have? Cochin's, Barred Rocks, Ameraucanas, Wyandottes, Salmon Faverolle, and a few assorted banty's (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? by searching for coop designs (5) What are some of your other hobbies? gardening, horses, dogs (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share I am a proud grand parent that loves to spend time with my grandkids. We live just outside San Antonio, Texas on a small piece of acreage and I am working on turning it into a self sufficient homestead. I work at home so I have the luxury of being able to tend to the animals all day.
