Hi, I guess I'll start with the template to just get some stuff out because I don't know what to put really. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I got my first 3 chickens from a Tractor Supply chick days when I was 15. They were a silkie, frizzled cochin, and a leghorn, and all were bantams. We lost the silkie after we fond a tumor in it (now that I look back I'm surprised that the other 2 lived as long as they did being from McMurray). Ended up with 3 laying red hens that we let be free range until we found a coyote over their corpses. I stopped raising chickens till recently and now I'm looking to start raising them again. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 5 hens and 7 ducks (3) What breeds do you have? 2 RIRs, a Buff Orp, a White Orp, a mixed breed hen, 2 Pekings, and 5 mixed ducks (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? My Wife who is registered as Shadowhills Farm (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Fishing, hunting, video games (I'm an addict lol), Jeeps, and an active aquarist (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I'm married to Shadowhills Farm. We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 4 rats, a hamster, a bunch of fish but only a pond and one tank up, and 2 horses I was born in Key West, Fl, and I'm the 5th generation in my family to be so. I grew up around animals and kept just about every "domestic" animal since I was a little kid.
