(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I got them 6 weeks ago, when my brother-in-law moved and asked us to take 30 or so chickens and a rooster.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?22

(3) What breeds do you have? Ummmm...don't know. Good meat and good eggs, though!

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

(5) What are some of your other hobbies? Dancing, organic farming, world travel, social justice, writing, starting to learn guitar

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My husband grew up on a ranch in Brazil, and we've just returned to his home country. We are wayyyyy out West, smack dab in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. We have a farm, that we're working on getting up and running, and rent a house in Buritis, Rondonia, Brazil where we keep our chickens and roosters in the yard, like almost everyone else here. (You eventually block out the rooster noise.)

Great to have you aboard! I bet you have predators in the rainforest we never have to consider here in the states! Best of luck!

Here, we seem to be OK. The cats and dogs pretty much leave the chickens alone. Birds of prey are a problem, but since we're in a city atmosphere, maybe there's less of that going on.

At the farm, jaguars LOVE chickens. Kinda small for them, they'll walk all night for a baby horse, but if they don't get one a chicken is a nice snack.
