(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!

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

Your chicks are adorable! :love If you would like to share more Pictures and Stories of them or your rabbits, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

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.
