(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens
  • I fostered 5 Silkies (4 hens and a rooster) for a friend in 2013
(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
  • I technically don't own them. They are feral/wild an lived here before I moved in.
(3) What breeds do you have?
  • Gwen the Hen is a Leghorn, and Brewster the Rooster is a Dutch Bantam.
(4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
  • Google

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
  • Reading - mainly about psychology and murder mysteries, hiking, camping, and baking
(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
  • I am a 34 year old, married, mother of two daughters ages 13 and 8, and I have a degree in Behavioral Studies from the University of New Orleans. I was born and raised in New Orleans, but now I live 35 minutes on the north side of lake ponchartrain. My husband is in the National Guard. My oldest daughter is 13, loves animals, and has become quite the animals rights activist, and an amazing artist. My youngest daughter is 8, she was diagnosed with autism, sensory processing disorder, and ADHD, but she is in gifted classes and reads at a middle school level. She's big into fashion and design. We have one cat, Chimera. He was a feral cat who adopted us.

G'Day from down under FleurDangereux :frow Welcome!

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your feral flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
