I am 63 years and embarking on a new adventure of raising chickens. I adopted my 5 chicks about 2 weeks ago and immediately had questions I didn't see answered in the books I had been reading. In a panic I started googling which led me to backyard chickens .What a wonderful informative friendly site! I am looking foward to watching my chicks grow and to find out what breed they are. I told the hatchery helper I knew I wanted pullets but would like an assortment of breeds for variety and fun. In my excitement I didn't ask what breed they were . Other interests I have are gardening, crocheting and sewing.
