    After lurking on this site for months before getting our girls, I took the plunge and signed up. So here it goes..

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? A full fledged newbie, we just picked up the girls on Saturday June 4th.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 2
    (they are 1 month old)
    (3) What breeds do you have? Buff Orpingtons

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

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Im super cheap so I love finding ways to save $$

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

    2 kidlets, girl child is 5 boy child is 3, and a hubs.
    Isabella and Goldie are our only pets. We got the chicks for the kids to raise, thougt it would be a great experience for them.
    I'm a stay at home mom. We live in Yorba Linda, which is a city in Orange County that embraces raising of animals.

    Hi, there. I joined minutes after you did. This is such a great resource! When I was picking up heartworm meds at the vet I was talking to a woman who had chickens before she downsized. She said she loves BYC and still reads the forums. LOL... I guess I'm hooked too!

    Good luck, and enjoy your chickens!

    Hey! Think yer gonna get more? [​IMG] We started out with the intention of having egg only birds, until I read around more at the meatie section of BYC and I have an order of meat birds coming next week. I suppose the idea was to save money, but in reality it'll probably cost me a little more than the chicken from the store. I think the novelty of it is tasting what REAL chicken is like!

    I know what you're saying about saving money though. I've become a coupon-a-holic and am always looking for a "good deal."
