    (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.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Mom to 3 girls and a stay at home mom for now.
    From Ireland originally - now living in New England.
