My name is Nikki. I've perused this site for some time now and decided I should join in the fun and get answers to my sometimes quirky questions. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? My six year old daughter and I decided in March that we should visit our local TSC and get some pullets. Started out with 12 chicks. The dog took care of one and then one ended up being a rooster so he went to the preacher's farm (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have a total of 10 hens: (3) What breeds do you have?5 White Leghorns and 5 of what we think are Rhode Island Reds but may just be production hens.... (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? google (5) What are some of your other hobbies? reading, golf, quilting (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am a nurse by trade and mom/wife by profession. I have a wonderful husband of 12 years, a six year old daughter, two dogs, a cat, a fish and 10 hens.
