Hello! My name is Kristina and I am completely new to chickens. I have wanted to get a backyard flock for three years now and decided that this was the year to make it happen! (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am completely new to chickens. My chicks are on order and will be arriving in late June. I am very impatient, but late June- early August was the only completely free stretch of time I could dedicate to raising baby chicks. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Zero! (3) What breeds do you have? I have ordered a speckled Sussex, gold laced Wyandotte, Easter egger, olive egger, black copper maran, and a salmon faverolles. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I found this site several years ago when I started exploring coop building and design. This site came up and had so many great examples. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I love to cook, read, and explore the outdoors.
