    hi all. i have used the message boards here countless times to search for information over the years, so i figured i'd finally join since i have found over the last couple of months that i've had specific questions and no place to get them answered!

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    no. i first got chickens in 2012. however, i am starting from scratch right now after not keeping chickens last year.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    23 7-week-olds and 24 hatching eggs on the way

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    welsummer, barred rocks, cream legbar, golden laced wyandotte, silver laced wyandotte, buff orpington, easter egger, blue copper marans, blue/black/splash ameraucana [the hatching eggs are white chantecler, black copper marans and olive egger]

    (4) How did you find out about
    years ago searching for info on chickens when i first started raising them

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    sewing, woodworking, making things, graphic design

    i live in upstate ny with singer/musician my husband, son [13] and dog [a yorkie-poo named pompey magnus, because why not]. for a very long time [13 years] i ran a cloth diapering business in which i made all of the products and sold them predominantly through my online store. i'm more or less done with that now, but will dabble from time to time when it comes to making things for friends/family. now i'm a stay at home mom and i take graphic design work when it comes to me and have spent the last year or so renovating our house and making things. and since i'm hatching 24 more eggs, i really need to build a coop ASAP. i just wish the weather would cooperate.
