Hi everyone This forum has been a great help so far and I am happy to have signed up tonight! Let me tell you a bit about me: (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? My friend and I are new to chickens. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We currently have 13 chickens -- 4 which we raised from 7 days old (now 2 months old) and 9 that are about 7 months old. (3) What breeds do you have? Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, and Australorps. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Googling for help! (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Cycling. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We are a house of 6 friends living in the silicon valley area. We all recently graduated college and decided to build a chicken coop and raise chickens in our front yard. We are excited to be here!
