    Hi there, you can call me Jen! I'm new to the state, and chickens in general. I'm hoping to get into quail, too.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    Two months ago

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?

    5

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    Orpingtons, some kind of adorable bantams (Okay okay they were five bucks for full grown adults! I was saving them from being eaten by coyotes!), and one sassy silkie. (Why are chickens like pringles? Once you pop you just can't stop...)

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    Trusty googlefu! Y'all are some of the most knowledgeable poultry folks around.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    You mean chickens aren't a life altering experience taking up all your time and adoration? >> Um... I watch netflix. I crochet.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    Goats, and cats, and chickens, and bunnies oh my.

    Nice to meet you Jen. Love your sense of humor. If you would like to know just what you have - post photos at "what breed or gender is this." It helps a lot if you mention age at time of photos.
