    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes, we are very new to owning and having chickens. We just got our chickens on May 6th, 2017

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

    We currently have 6 chickens.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    We have 2 Danish Leghorns, 2 Barred Rock, and 2 Silver Wyandottes

    (4) How did you find out about

    Google search of course! or perhaps Pinterest searches

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    I own 5 Havanese dogs, and have been active in the agility community with them.

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

    My husband and I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. We have about 2 acres and have been wanting to get chickens for a while. Our current home was our vacation home until we moved here permanently last fall. The commute is longer in miles, but worth it. We just had a record winter rain fall this past winter, which almost made us reconsider our decision.

    Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. I'm sure your rainy days were just a fluke for California, so I doubt that you have to worry about them next year. It has to be better than severe draught.

    Hello and welcome to our community.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource -

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

    All the best
