(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We got chickens last year - a mixed bunch and love them all. We added to our flock in March and are having a lot of fun with our new pets. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Too many according to my husband ! lol (3) What breeds do you have? I love our large breed cochins but we have a large assortment of many breeds - they all get along and have bonded into a tight group. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I wanted chickens for a long time and researched what it would take to have a backyard flock. This site was incredibly helpful - all my questions answered in one resource. I love BYC. !! (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I like knitting and crafts. Reading is not my hobby it is just part of living, I go to our library a lot.
