    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I finally got my girls today! This is my first flock :) I'm excited and nervous all at once

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 6!

    (3) What breeds do you have? Sexlink (black) and Americaunas (although, they aren't true, and I know that. I figured I would start with these this year)

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Google or pinterest

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Personal Training (was my job, but I had to leave it for my husband to have an amazing opportunity), Oil Painting, and Gardening

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have a 4 y/o, 2 dogs, and I'm a SAHM (now)... hence the chickens. LOL. We moved here almost 7 years ago (almost 5 acres) and I've been wanting chickens for years. Finally got them!

    Pataskala sure brings back memories. I used to have a friend there that published "Cocker Spaniel Leader," magazine in the '70s

    G’Day from down under Collibeth [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
