    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I raised chickens (along with you name it I probably raised it) growing up and off and on the last few years. I live in town and they recently passed it where I can have my chickens as long as they aren't an "annoyance" I live on a corner with a fairly decent sized property for being in town. My mom lives behind me (part of the same property) and our neighbors are really never home so I figured I would go for it. [​IMG] One of my neighbors actually said they wanted us to get a rooster because that was her husbands wish was to hear one and he has passed on but she would like to hear them. [​IMG]

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 2 almost adult, 3 just a bit younger (I believe one of those is a rooster) and one very spoiled young chick who doesn't seem to realize he is a chicken.

    (3) What breeds do you have? The chick is a Cuckoo Maran and the two almost adult are black sex link. I'm told the 3 others are a different type of maran.

    (4) How did you find out about Web search then I've found this site to be a big help and just loved reading the posts.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I am an artist and crafts person. [​IMG] I try most any type of craft and I do digital art as well as murals, sketches, and sometimes paintings.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am happily married with 3 teenagers and a toddler so we have our hands pretty full and then we have a cat Pounce, a couple other cats who have decided they live here and we just don't argue with them and a pair of guinea pigs. [​IMG] I am disabled with Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis but I try to find ways to pursue things in life such as a mini back yard farm. Always learning [​IMG]

    what a nice introduction. It sounds like a great backyard farm. Good luck with the rooster--hope that no one there considers him an annoyance!

    I love this forum too--- what a great learning experience.
