    Ok here goes [​IMG]

    Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    had chickens when i was younger and have always liked them [​IMG] Finally convinced hubby to build me a big coup and run in the thoughts of only having 3-4chickens LOL

    How many chickens do you have right now?
    Right now i have 11 pullets/hens and then 5 chicks [​IMG]

    What breeds do you have?
    Ok this will take awhile to type as we wanted the hens as pets first and the eggs are just a HUGE bonus we wanted to try and get every hen to be different so the kids could name them so we now have 1 of each of the following:
    barred rock, hyline, Lavender araucana, Blue Orpington, speckled hamburg, wyandotte, australorp x 2, 2 x silky bantums, dorking and the 5 chicks we have atm are barred rock, hyline, 2 x light sussex and araucana

    How did you find out about
    From the lovely lady i got some chicks from
