Hi all, my husband and I are located in La Habra, CA. We're new to the forum and new to raising chickens! I'll start by answering the recommended introduction questions. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes, we are new to chickens; not eating them or their eggs, just to raising them. We got our 3 chicks nearly a week ago. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Three little chicks that are 2.5 weeks old. (3) What breeds do you have? 1 Buff Orpington, 1 Welsummer, and 1 Speckled Sussex. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Internet search. I've contemplated raising chickens for a while now, but only recently decided to go for it. (My husband is very supportive.) (5) What are some of your other hobbies? The hubs and I met on a goldfish forum, so neither of us are new to forums. We both used to keep fancy goldfish. Now we have a small koi pond in the back yard with 1 large koi and 1 comet. Other hobbies include travel and eating tasty food. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. It's just the hubs and myself. We have 2 small rescue dogs, and 2 small indoor fish tanks with cory cats and a betta. I am a high school mathematics teacher; I teach Integrated Math 1 and Pre-Calculus. The hubs works in IT. Looking forward to learning all sorts of new things and watching the little chicks grow!
