(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am new to chickens. I don't even have any yet. Waiting for my coop to be built. In the meantime, I'm trying to learn as much as I can. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? None, yet. (3) What breeds do you have? (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I love to read and travel. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I moved to the country recently and am loving country life. I live with my retired firefighter and a spoiled old diva dog. I teach first grade. We are hockey fans and spend a great deal of time outside.
