(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? My grandmother and Granddad had chickens when I was a little girl. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 2 babies and I don't know what kind they are yet. Got them from a kindergarten class. (3) What breeds do you have? I think one of them may be a silkie. The other is brown speckled and bigger. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? It must have been on FB. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I have 2 parrots, like gardening and reading. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am starting to build a chicken coup so looking for ideas before I get too far along.
