(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes. We first got our chickens last year. We brought 9 home from the local feed store. Sadly we lost one that day, and one to a raccoon or skunk (My son's little Silkie) (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Right now we have 5 hens (it's been a learning curve with the cold Utah winters) and 5 babies that are just about 7 weeks. My kids have already asked for 4 more Silkies to be named after the Dragons in How to Train your Dragon (3) What breeds do you have? Amerucana SexLink Wyandottes Golden Phoenix Leg Horn (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Multiple Google searches trying to identify all the chicks we brought home (our kids pick them mostly on cuteness factors) (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We have 6 kids (5 at home & one in North Carolina), 3 dogs, 4 goats, 4 ducks, and a horse (and i just got a message that my hubby is bringing home 2 goslings and 2 Russian Orloffs) We recently moved from the suburbs to 4 acres in a small mountain community and are loving the slower pace. We are dedicated to our animals, and our kids are active participants in caring for all of them.
