    I made an account several weeks ago but never got around to introducing myself.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I used to have chickens when my daughter lived at home, years ago. When she moved out, the last two were killed by racoons. I never replaced them. Last summer she raised 10 Cochins for me in her brooder. 5 were roosters so she took them back.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    5

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Cochins, 3 black and 2 buff

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
    Their antics and bug control

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Gardening, quilting, knitting

    My daughter recommended BYC for coop ideas
