(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
I grew up with chickens in Germany. Now I am in Minnesota and have again a new flock with my boyfriend.

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

Right now we have 10 chickens. We just got our new Flock 2 weeks ago.
They are a mix between 3 and 6 month old.

(3) What breeds do you have?

We have 3 Black Giants, 4 red sexlinks and 3 Red Longhorns

(4) How did you find out about

Through Google

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

Right now? Sitting almost none stop with the chickens in the run :)

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

Well, that's me, by daughter and my boyfriend. As well we have 6 dogs, a Hamster and round about 10k Mealworms. Which we also started because of the chickens.

I wonder if, at some point, chickens start to feel like "OH NO not mealworms Again!!" Maybe they have Mealworm Helper for chickens. Sorry, I just had a silly spell. :welcome
