Hi-there!! We're just thinkin' about gettin' chickens for eggs. 1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? ---> We are thinkin' about getting some hens for eggs (no roosters). We need more info so here we are Our yard is not fenced in, so I'm thinking a "tractor" would be just right. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? ---> this forum was mentioned by some friends. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? ---> I'm a gardener & my husband plays card games (magic the happening [or whatever it's called]), our Boys are 7.5 & 4.5, both play games like Dad. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. ---> We have 1 fish. We homeschool & are always out & about. We love to go creek hiking. We live in central Ohio & have pretty cold winters w/not a lot of snow.
