    Hi. The name is Kim, and I;m from Arizona. I am completely new to chickens. I don't have any yet. I'm still in the planning/convincing my husband that we need chickens phase. I'm thinking of waiting until October and buying from a 4Her at the State Fair. Right now I'm researching the different breeds. I really like Silkies. This is an urban homestead, so I have to keep things small, and a little on the quiet side ;)

    The hubby and I have 6 six kids, ages 8 - 23. We also have a 6 m/o grandson. We have three dogs, who will be fenced away from the chickens. I'm opening a home daycare. What else? Oh, I do a lot of artsy/craftsy stuff. Lately I've been turning Thrift store furniture into play refridgerators and stoves for the daycare. And , just to freak out the Old Timers on here,I think I'll make my chicken coop look like an old gypsy wagon, lol. Yes. I have a weird sense of humor, too.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
