    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    I'm new to chickens!

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


    18 eggs, they'll be candled down to see which eggs are viable shortly!

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    I have buff orpington and cochin/sebright bantam eggs in the incubator.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    I googled how to raise chickens as my girlfriend and I have wanted our own backyard farm for a long time now, and this is our first step towards that.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?


    lacrosse, gardening, cats, video games, netflix series

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


    I have a daughter named Poppy due in April with my girlfriend Jaime, we have 3 cats in our house, I work 2 jobs 1- full time/1 part time, hoping to move back down to 1 job soon enough!
     
  2. I wish you the best of luck on your eggs hope they make it all the way!

    Congrats on the soon to be born little girl, Love the name!

    Howdy- I am from NE Illinois- are you NE or NW? I also just joined, but do not have any chickens yet. Just found out we are allowed to have them since an ordinance was passed late last year.
    I'm curious as to what type of coop you have.

    Best,

    Margi
