    Hello all! I am Heather and I joined today but I have been looking through the forums almost daily for the last few weeks to prepare for our new hens that we finally got this weekend! Looking forward to sharing our experience and learning from yours!
    And a little about me:

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? New to Chickens, just got 4 hens 5/14/2016 [​IMG]

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 4

    (3) What breeds do you have? 2 Buff Orrington's and 2 Easter Eggers

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

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Drawing, woodworking, camping, travel, spending time with my family

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We have 2 cats, 1 dog (just lost one dog 5/1/2016 :( ), 4 chickens, 2 mallard ducks that we are housing for our neighbors and 2 neon fish
