    Good morning, all! Newbie here :) Excited to learn from everyone!

    I'll answer the questions, now :)

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yup, brand new! We got them in mid-March of this year.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    4

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Buckeye, Speckled Sussex, Easter Egger, and (I believe) a Cuckoo Maran. I may be scooting over to the 'What breed is this?' threads for the last one!

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I've been constantly searching for info/ideas/etc and BYC came up consistently for me, so I came over to check it out. I've been lurking ever since!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I sew and quilt, run and ride my bike, and chase after my kiddos :)


    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I'm a SAHM but trained as a librarian (hence the SN); we have 3 fish and 2 cats currently; 2 kids, ages 7 and almost 4; we live in beautiful CO. I feel like a brand new mom again with these chickies, so I'm equal parts excited and nervous about the whole thing!

    Did you make up the questions or did you find a question-layout? It's nice to know some things about you!

    Hello and [​IMG] Glad you've joined us here! Leave it to a librarian to go through the stickies and find all the good stuff like an intro template! LOL [​IMG]
    Wishing you the best in your new chicken journey and hoping that you enjoy the site!

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

    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.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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]
