Hello! I'm a 26 year old wife, toddler mama, teacher, and newly established Chicken Mama. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I have 8 eggs that I am currently incubating as a part of an innovative to help increase my student's attendance. I got the idea of 'class pet' that I wouldn't have to keep in the classroom forever. My husband and I are moving out to his family farm this summer so I thought that this would be a perfect time to start our own little flock of chickens. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 8 incubating eggs, not sure how many chickies we will get. (3) What breeds do you have? I'm really not sure what type of eggs I have. I got them from a coworker who said she has a mixed flocked. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I have one of those personalities where I like to try to do everything the best I can so I've been googling a ridiculous amount of chicken related questions which landed me here. I finally decided to 'drink the kool-aid' (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I'm a pretty crafty person. I love sewing, knitting, and all those things. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. Like I said, I'm a wife of three years and a momma to a perfect little 1.5 year old boy who loves everything animal, farm and car related. Besides our hopefully soon to be chickens, we have two rambunctious dogs and a cat, who believes he's a dog.
