Hi from a fairly new chicken keeper


Mar 7, 2018
(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
We got our first chickens a year ago. We just got 4 new ones a month ago as well. This is our first time keeping chickens.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
We have 7 - 3 adults a year old and 4 new ones. We lost our sweet Black Australorp on Christmas Eve.

(3) What breeds do you have?
Buff Orpington, White Leghorn, Wellsummer are the adults. Now we added 2 Auracanas, a Silver Wyandotte, and a Barred Rock.

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

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
Knitting, mushroom hunting, canoeing, being outside as much as possible.

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

We're a small family - me, my husband and our 7 year old son. We had a precious 14 year old dog, but she died in November. So it's just us and our chickens!

You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.
