Hello! (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I'm brand new to raising chickens, I've been wanting to for years and finally took the plunge this month. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Currently I have 10 baby chicks (3) What breeds do you have? 4 Buff Orpingtons, 3 Barred Rock and 3 Black Sex Linked, all hens. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I found the forums after searching google with questions. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Fishing, acrylic pouring, sewing, tie dye. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My husband and I live at 10,500ft in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with our cockapoo adam. I've always wanted to raise chickens and this year i decided I was going to start doing all the things I've always wanted, and keeping chickens was at the top of my list. We live on a quarter of an acre in a working class neighborhood so i opted not to keep a Rooster out of respect for our neighbors. We'll be building our own coop and run for our girls soon. I look forward to becoming a member of the BYC community!
