    Hi All,

    I've been researching chickens in anticipation of adding a few to our little family, so much so that I'm dreaming chickens! Thought that was a good sign I should probably join!

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? - when I was a kid, about 7, I got my first chicken. She was about 3 weeks old and scrawny, but blossomed into a beautiful chicken.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? None <-- help me rectify this! [​IMG]

    (3) What breeds do you have? I *think* the chicken I had was some kind of Rhode Island Red. I *think*. As far as breeds now, I'm wondering if we should go bantam - Ameraucana, Barred Rock, or Barnevelder?

    (4) How did you find out about It's not hard to stumble across if you're serious about researching chickens online... probably google [​IMG]

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Anything related to my family, and sewing. I [​IMG] sewing almost as much as chickens.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. A husband, 3 kids, sahm, wannabe chicken breeder.

    Please help me get from this: [​IMG] to this: [​IMG]
