    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I grew up on a Dairy farm but now live in a suburb with about 4 acres. Growing up we had egg laying chickens and fryers/heavies/freezer (I think that's what they were called!)

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? None

    (3) What breeds do you have? None

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Pinterest researching

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Gardening (vegetables, perennials, trees/shrubs), kids activities, knitting and paper crafting/DIY.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have 3 cats and a dog and I am a teacher.

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D . A friend with chickens recommended it!

    So when are you gettin chickens? You have plenty of room with 4 acres! Do you want to get both kinds again-layers for eggs and "broilers" for meat? Seems like they're better off being raised separately though since their needs are so different... or you could go with dual purpose breeds. The dual purpose come in so many pretty varieties and they're usually friendlier too.
    Visit the Learning Center to help get you started... good luck!!
