    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I had chickens growing up but they were very mean and unfriendly and I had been afraid of them since, but I had a friend that needed to get rid of her chickens and no one could/would take them, and since i like rescueing things I took them and it would be a great learning experience for my boys.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We rescued 4 and then rescued 6more and kids wanted babies so we bought 5chicks. and I got 2 seb geese

    (3) What breeds do you have? I don't know off hand.

    (4) How did you find out about Facebook chicken group

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Sewing arts n crafts, stain/fuse glass. baseball,

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have 5boys 8yrs n under. My oldest named his chickens after videogames(mario,kong,pacman), my 2nd named his after weathers(stormy,lightning,thunder) my 3rd named his monsters(monster,frankestein,zombie), and my 2 chicks(have hairy feet not sure the breed) so i named them hairy potters, my seb geese are peaches n cream. we have 1 dog he's a cavachon his name is bailey(he was named by the neighborhood kids) about 1.5yrs old he is my 4yr olds dog. I work from home so I can be with my babies. We live in Pinellas county, Florida.
