1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes! My son and I (and hubby, what a good sport) raised 6 chicks that came out of a 4-H embryology project this spring. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 4--1 Leghorn roo, 2 leghorn hens, 1 RI red hen (3) What breeds do you have? Leghorns and RI Red (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Recommended by an animal shelter (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Homeschooling my kid, sports, reading (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We are a Mom, a Dad, and a 10-year-old boy. We share our home with the chickens, 3 cats, some mice, and some crayfish. I am also looking to adopt 2 guinea pigs and maybe some fish. We like to be outside, camp, travel, go to historical re-enactments, and generally hang out together and have fun. The chickens are part of our dream of a hobby farm. Hubs won't let me get a pig yet, but I'm working on it.
