Hi everyone. I've been lurking for a while. This is a great source of info for a newbie! I'm heading over to emergencies now, though, with some questions... (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? This is our third year with chickens (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 9 hens and 51 meat birds (3) What breeds do you have? Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks and Red Bros (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? google (5) What are some of your other hobbies? market gardening, soapmaking, cheesemaking (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My partner and I have a small homestead and organic market gardens. I'm also a graphic designer, and we have 3 cats and one dog.
