Hi!! I've been reading all kinds of cool stuff on this board for over a year now. I think it's time to stop lurking and actually participate.

(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
Yes .. well, we bought our first chicks from the hardware store in 3/17.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
13

(3) What breeds do you have?
1 - buff orphington
3 - australorp
3 - production reds
4 - isa brown
2 - easter eggers (on of which is an adorable splash roo)

(4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
searching for chicken advice, and boy did I find it

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
horseback riding and unsuccessful gardening

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
Currently residing in Coastal SC on a hobby farm with 2 horses, all the chickens, 3 cats, and 2 dogs. Goats are coming as soon as the fencing is in place. I work in IT at a local college to pay for the fun I have at home. Married for 18 years with two precious teenagers.

Glad you're here !

A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)

We love unsuccessful gardeners too! :D
