I missed this part of the becoming a chicken person process!!! (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? From the age of 6 to the age of 13 I had chickens on my parents' farm. LOTS of chickens. Lots of ducks and turkeys too. Havent done any birds for 12 years but now that I have kids I want them to experience it! (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Ordered 30, none yet (3) What breeds do you have? Ordered Australorp, Cuckoo Maran, RIR, Speckled Sussex, GL Wyandotte, and Welsummer (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Googled Chickens a LOOOOONG time ago and found it (5) What are some of your other hobbies? a little of everything. Reading, crochet, gardening, cooking (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have 4&5 yr old boys and a 36 yr old DH who is just another kid. We live on the farm that he grew up on in rural MN. He raises angus, and with an enormous, empty yard, I am doign my part to zoo it up, we have goats and ducks and dogs right now. I work at Social Services, and spend most of my down time at work on this site.
