    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 BackYardChickens.com?

    Through Google

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

    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
