Hi chicken people! We are new-ish chicken owners. I don't know if anyone uses this template, but here goes... (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am new to chickens. DH worked at a chicken farm growing up, so he has experience. He pestered his parents for years to have chickens, and they wouldn't do it. So, now, we are chicken people. We bought his mother's hobby farm 2 years ago, and the chickens are finally here. We have had them for about 5 weeks. DH spent the first few days of summer holidays finishing off a converted horse stall in the barn for a coop and has just finished off the outside run recently, so we are good to go. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have 27. Started with 27 and still going strong.... (3) What breeds do you have? We ended up with a mixed bag/hatch day selection, and TBH I cannot remember all that is out there. We are hopeful that once they get bigger we can sort out breeds. From memory, we have some RIR, Black Sex Linked, Columbian Rock, Barred Plymouth Rock, and something else I am forgetting. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Good old google. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? My kids. Cooking. Running. Does laundry count? (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share We have three kids (7, 5 and 3), a dog (an ancient hound), two bachelor cats, and two rabbits. I am a SAHM and run a preschool/childcare out of our house. In my previous life I was a special ed teacher, and DH is a grade 6 teacher.
