Hello,
My 14yo son decided last fall he wanted to give raising chickens a try. My 9yo wanted to also. We thought it would be good to have them research and start in the spring when it was warmer.

(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
Yesterday after their dad got home from work we went to the feed store and got our first chickens. We got 3 of each breed and have plans to get about 10 more of various breeds.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now? 9

(3) What breeds do you have? Light Braham, RIR, Barred Rock

(4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? during our research for coop/tractor ideas

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
We will be sharing this ID. I crochet, read, and volunteer. My 9yo loves Roblox, LEGO, and imaginary missions. My 14 enjoys LEGO, robotics, bonsai, and model rocketry. We garden as a family and are remodeling.


(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
We don't have other pets due to allergies. We are hoping once that won't be an issue with the chickens. Friends think I am crazy for doing this since I am allergic to eggs but the boys will handle them and sell them, hopefully.

We are making our way through some of the threads but there is a lot here!

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

Mullers3acres we used to drive through your area several times a year on the way to visit relatives. I am originally from MI and had relatives in the Chicago suburbs. I haven't talked to my mom to see if it is warming up there.

I haven't been on a non-regional board of any kind a l long time so it is fun to get hello's from all over
