(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Brand new. I grew up with horses and goats but gave up long ago on the idea of raising anything other than a dog when I moved out of the rural area. But you can't take the country out of the girl And nothing beats a pet that produces fresh food (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have four chicks that are 1 week and 2 weeks old (3) What breeds do you have? We have an Americauna, a Leghorn, a Black Frizzle and a Welsummer. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I was searching Google for chicken coop ideas and it seemed like 90% of them originated from this site. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Gardening, Baking, Weaving, History Clubs. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
