    Hi, just want to step to introduce myself a bit and about my flock.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    I've been raising hens in my backyard since 2013 so not exactly "new" to raising chickens.

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

    Three now. I used to have seven.

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    Currently raising a Buff Brahma, an Americana, and a White Leghorn

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?

    Watching baby chicks hatch after an adoptive hen been laying on for few weeks! :D

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    I live near mountains so almost everyday I enjoy doing trail runs.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    I've been living on my own in a studio attached to a house and the owners don't mind letting me raise chickens in their backyard.

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community?

    Ever since I start raising chickens sometimes I come to this website and just read on some tips to keep my flock healthy and happy. Never thought someday I'll come here to write to ask some questions.
