... and in eastern NC. I've thought about getting 5 birds of varied breeds for a long time now. My town allows 5 within city limits, I just learned. Here's some input: 1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? -- totally new; haven't even bought a coop yet (and may have to wait until early 2019) (2) How many chickens do you have right now? zero (3) What breeds do you have? NA (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Kinda stumbled onto it online. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Beekeeping, veg/herb gardening, the gym workouts, playing around with my backyard fish pond. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I'm interested in getting some birds as, basically, pets and to maybe even collect some home-grown eggs. Had 1 chicken when I was a kid and thought it was great fun.
