Hi My name is Tai. I have enjoyed reading all the posts on BYC and decided I should just join. I really decided when I saw a pic of "frizzles" on the cover of the "Backyard Poultry" magazine and wondered where I could get some and then I realized I knew just the place to go and ask. Right now we have silkies. We were looking for some chickens and we found out someone in our town was having to get rid of hers because they were moving. We have fallen in love with them. But now I am on to Frizzles!!! I want some of them too. But I thought I would answer these few questions so you could get to know me. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We are pretty new to chickens. We had Barred Rocks before and I did not like them at all. Loved the eggs just not the chickens. They were very aggressive. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Now we have 13 Silkies and 2 Easter eggers (I believe that is what they are called) (3) What breeds do you have? Oops, I answered that question in #2 (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I had run across the site before when I was searching stuff but the lady that we got the chickens from told me about it and said I could learn anything I needed to know from BYC. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Anything with animals, gardening, making jewlery, making cards and paper crafts, building and sign language. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.. My husband Mark and I have been married for 8 years. He is very quite and reserved and I am the complete opposite. He likes all my animals but doesnt love them as much as me and is very tolerant! We have two kids, Graci is 7 and Case (which we call Quesadilla) is 3 and a half. They are my whole world!!!!! Ok. Now for the animals.... 15 goats, 15 chickens, 12 cows, 4 guineas, 4 dogs, 3 peacocks, 1 horse and 1 crazy turkey. Oh and I'm not sure how many cats we have around our ranch, but quite a few!!!!
