(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
Very new to chickens. Got my first 12 birds in October 09 - 10 mature laying hen (6 buff and 4 black Orpington), 1 rooster (Rhode Island Red), 1 juvie hen (black Orpington). The rooster was a gift too because he just showed up one day and they didn't know how old he was or who he belonged to.
5 of my birds were given to me by a friend in November who was having preditor troubles, so I was greatful for the gift.

17 hens, one rooter

(3) What breeds do you have?
1 Rhode Island red rooster, 6 Buff and 5 Black Orpington, 1 silver Ameraucana (see lays green eggs), 2 Dominique, 3 mixed or unknown

This is my 2nd year with chickens, I currently have about 30. My favorite breeds are the Australorps, and Orpingtons. They are something else!
I'm a now stay at home mom, since my old employer decided that China need my job more than me...
I love traveling with my kids, cooking, soon canning, Will be Breeding German Sheperds in the future.. and collecting Fiestaware, and old milk bottles.
I found BYC while doing research before getting our chickens.

You'll Love it here!
