    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Brand new! We got our first chicks three weeks ago.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Just the three. It’s all our city allows.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    We have an Americana, Australorp, and Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    starchicky

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Looking to get back intro brewing and gardening.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I’m excited to introduce my daughter to keeping chickens. She already asks to see the “bok-bok” first thing every morning. I grew up on a farm (surprisingly chicken-less), but I have fond memories of it, so this is my compromise until we can buy a farm of our own! We’ll need the space too since it’s myself, my husband, my 14-month-old daughter, any future children we may have, a 123 lb boxer mix, 50 lb pit bull, a panther in a 10 Siamese kitty body, 3 adorable chickens, and a pea puffer. Yet somehow, I still want more.

    G’Day from down under PragPlat :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    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.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Articles, a Learning Centre and also Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, 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 ;)

    Wonderful PragPlat! I used to give my daughter a little cup of scratch and let her "feed the chickens" in the run when she was that age. She would judiciously dole it out to them while they followed her around asking for more.

    Welcome to BYC! Great to have you here!
