    Hi Everyone!
    I've been lurking for almost a year and decided it was time to register and post my questions.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    We got our first chicks this spring.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    We have 4 because that is the most we are allowed to have in our township

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    We have a Wyandotte and three Ameraucana

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Google of course [​IMG]

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I'm a big gardener, love to preserve my harvests, sewer and DIY home remodeler

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    We have two young daughters, two smaller indoor dogs and an outside cat. I'm blessed to be able to stay at home with my kids and provide my family with almost all locally raised foods.

    Hello, friend!

    I live in Bay County and have "too many" chickens. Started this hobby a couple years ago, on a whim, and I am HOOKED FOR LIFE.
    My DD adores her silkies, so we have allowed our medium sized flock to shift in that direction. This, to the detriment of egg production. [​IMG] In addition to the silkies, we have one turken, some Australorps, Wyandottes, Cochins, etc.
