    Hi everyone,

    We are going to be first time chicken owners next week!! You'd think we were leaving for an exotic cruise the excitement in our house is so high. Our family has found these boards very helpful already and we look forward to sharing our chicken journey as well.

    First time owners
    (2)  How many chickens do you have right now?
    None.... 7 coming
    (3)  What breeds do you have?
    We ordered the "rare breed" assortment from my pet chicken
    (4)  How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Looking for more info on chickens I googled backyard chickens, lol
    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Hiking, all things in the craft world
    (6)  Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    Welcome to BYC!

    You must let us know when your chicks come, and how they are doing. We also LOVE pictures!

    I understand the excitement, we are 10 weeks into the whole experience, and we are lovin it! Our final coop and pen are built, so they are out of my stable's horse barn feed room, and have their own space.


    Glad you joined us!
    Good Luck,
