    Hello everyone,

    I'm excited to be a part of the community, I live offgrid in very north Maine.

    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? -- kind of I had raised chickens when i was 8, and again when I was older. Now I have a homestead and have a very large flock

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?-- 28

    (3) What breeds do you have? Rhode island reds, barred rock, Americanos, jersey giants, amber link, and cornish

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? Everything I love eggs, I love taking care of them I love that they stole my neighbors sandwich

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? --- Living with 0 electricity cooking on a woodstove and living my dream

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

    I also have 7 Guinea hens, 6 turkeys ( yes I know all about black head), 3 ducks and 3 rescue dogs as well as my hubby who is a blacksmith, and create shepherds slings and various other primitive weaponry

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D -- from Google searches your forum comes up on every question i ask, known about you for about a few months but too shy to join
