Hello Everyone, since I am new to this forum and to raising chickens I thought I would post the template that was given on the website. Here goes... (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am very new to chickens, I got my first chicks September 15, who were born on the 13th. Still learning a lot about them and what I have to do to help them survive. It is late in the year to get them and I am worried about them surviving the Wisconsin Winters as they are still so young. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? I have 24 all together and some are meaters and the rest are layers. Most of them are layers so I am not sure what kinds they are as of yet. (3) What breeds do you have? See number 2. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I googled chicken coops. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? scrapbooking and I have started a hobby farm. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My Mom lives with me as I take care of her and sometimes my Brother pops in as he is a OTR truck driver so he lives here with us when he comes home(very seldom). We have 3 bull calves and a baby girl calf, and One milk cow (gernsey) and one holstein female who is pregnant with her 1st calf (5 months still). I love this forum, very informative.
