    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes! I finally took the dive on March 15th 2018. Convinced the hubby to keep his promise to build me a coop. Mwahaha!
    I had one chicken as a kid, my dog brought her home and we had her for a few years, gave us really yummy eggs.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I have 4 chicks.


    (3) What breeds do you have?
    2 rhode island red (hubbies) and 2 gold laced Wyandotte (my babies!)

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com
    I think it was Facebook.


    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Raising rabbits. We have 6 right now, 2 new Zealand, 2 Flemish giant, and 2 californian. My new Zealand is pregnant yay!

    That has happened since I've begun to run to the coop to check on my chicks every time I get home.
    But how can I not?
    THEY'RE SO STINKING CUTE.
