    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I have wanted chickens for a long time, but I finally got some today!

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    8 new baby chicks.
    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Well...I was trying to get supplies, chickens and information and I forgot to see which babies were which breeds. Maybe someone here can help me figure it out.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    From a Google search

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Reading, spending time with my husband, children, and various pets.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share

    My husband and I will celebrate 17 years of marriage on April 13. I have four children; three daughters (ages 16, 15, and 9) and a son (age 12). I am a Stay at home mom and I would like to start a hobby farm. We have four dogs (A 12-year-old Husky/Collie mix, a 4-year-old terrier mix, a 1.5-year-old Brittany Spaniel and a 10-month-old Chihuahua mix), a cat, a ferret, fish, and our new chickies.

    Here they are! Any suggestions about their breeds? I can call and find out, but this may be more fun.

    I think they're probably too young for us to tell but once they are about 4-5 weeks old, you can post full-body photos of them here:What Breed Or Gender is This?

    Hope you enjoy them!
