    Hello everyone, this is a wonderful site full of great information!

    1) Are you new to chickens
    Yes! Our first chickens, they are now about 7 weeks and are spending the first night outside in the coop tonight.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    We have four chickens.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Silver lace Wyndotte, Black Jersey Giant, Rhode Island Red, Golden Sex-link

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    In the Pleasanton Weekly newspaper

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

    We live in Pleasanton, have 3 dogs, goldfish pond and aquarium fish. My husband works for Lexus, we have two children aged 15 and 12. We are having a great time with the chickens, I never knew they had so much personality. It has been a great experience so far!

    Hi Itsy,

    I am having a hard time tonight, my husband thinks I am crazy but it feels like sending your first child off to Kindergarten! I know they will be fine but I am anxious to say the least. Thanks for the Welcome!
