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

    Today: I was picking up additional ducks for our home flock (we didn't get enough ducklings when the feedstore had them) and the woman had the chickens in a very small critter cage in the pickup and begged me to take them. I felt bad for them sitting in that tiny cage in the pickup and brought them home. Then immediately hit BYC for information on caring for the new flappers.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Five chickens (& 22 ducks)

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    2 Rhode Island Reds (Scarlet & Ruby)
    2 Leghorns (br: Betty & wh: Flossy)
    1 Easter Egg Rooster (at least, we think so) Roobios

    7 Khaki Campbells (6 ducks, 1 drake) - Lucky Penny (aka Zombie duck), Madame & Bianca, Bernie, Breakfast, Lunch & Supper
    2 Rouens (1 duck/1 drake) - Nera & Brutus
    1 Runner (duck) - Luca
    1 Black Swede (duck) - Babs
    3 Blue Swedes (2 ducks/1 drake) - Nanny Oog, Granny Weatherwax & Magrat, Rincewind
    2 Blue Swede/Khaki Campbell mixes (ducks) - Agnes & Tiff
    2 Cayuga mix (drakes) - Snack & Dinner
    2 Magpies - Anastasia & Lavadia
    2 Chocolate Anconas - Tatiana & Catherina

    What can I say? I love diversity! (In my own defense, I didn't name them Hubby & B-I-L did!)

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

    That's a LOT of animals, even by MY standards! I guess because you don't sound like you're going to eat many of them.... Not the cats, anyways. [​IMG]
