Hello! New here though I've watched/ consulted a few times this past year (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We got our first set of chicks from Rural King last August. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 6 (3) What breeds do you have? We have 3 hens: a Buff Orpington, a red sex link (ISA Brown), a black sex link (Black Australorp). We had a barred rock, but he was a rooster so he headed for a farm in the next town over. He fertilized a few eggs with some White Leghorns, Barred Rocks, and Silver Wyandotte hens that we placed under our broody Buff Orpington and we now have 3 new chicks (3.5 weeks). One is black and white, so either a barred rock or a mix with the silver wyandotte hen and the barred rooster. The others are almost white with some spots, so probably a mix between the White Leghorn hen and the Barred Rock rooster. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Google! (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Too many. Photography, reading, traveling, hiking. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am a teacher and we have 2 dogs and 3 girls (human).
