I found the nifty questionaire from another thread and decided I'd fill it out. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am BRAND new to chickens, and I don't have one yet but am thinking about getting a rooster. My neighbors have one and want him gone, and I would like to have him. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Zero (3) What breeds do you have? N/A (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Google, as I was trying to find SOME place where I can get my questions answered! (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Ferrets, ferrets ferrets ferrets! I love any animal, but none have connected with me quite as close as my ferrets have. They are my life. I am also very into photography and image editing. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My name is Emilee, and I am owned currently by a dog (Bichon) , cat, and two ferrets. I am getting a third ferret in about three weeks though, I've been waiting to get him since April and I can't believe it's finally happening! I live in northern Maine. I'd like to ask if someone could help me out and suggest some things for roosters. I'm not quite sure if there is like, a brand I should feed him, if he will be okay in a northern Maine winter, and just exactly what he needs for housing. I am COMPLETELY new to Chicken World, and I want the rooster to be happy if I end up getting him! His crow is just too adorable and every morning I will sit outside just to listen to him. Thanks, guys!
