Hi my name is Nichole, I have really been enjoying the information I have been finding on these forums so I thought I should properly introduce myself and say HI! Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am brand new to chickens we got our babies 3 weeks ago. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? I have 12 (3) What breeds do you have? 3 Americauna, 3 Mt Caramel, 3 Barred Rock and 3 Laced Wyandotte (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? We love animals and can't wait to spoil our chickens and have fresh eggs too! (5) What are some of your other hobbies? We ride a Harley for fun and enjoy traveling. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have 6 children ages 22 down to 10 and we rescue Pit Bulls we have 6 of our own...we also have three hamsters. (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? I was looking online to educate myself on the care and safety of keeping chickens when I came across BYC.
