    I jumped the gun yesterday and posted about my hens before saying hello, so here I am saying HI! I'm better at answering questions than I am about telling things about myself so I will go through the form that BYC set up.
    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    We moved to this house 4 yrs ago and I purchased chicks the following spring.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I have 16 chickens and 1 rooster


    (3) What breeds do you have?
    1 Special Black [ that's what the hatchery called them I'm pretty sure she's some form or fashion of an Australorp ], 2 Buff Oripingtons [ that are humongous lol ], 4 Leghorns, 4 Barred Rock [ that are as flaky and flighty as the Leghorns ], 4 barn yard reds [that look like Red Star or Red Sexlinks?] And 1 Rooster

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Searching the Web looking to learn and for answers.


    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I crochet and like to garden, tho doing that now with chickens proves to be a test.


    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I'm married, have a dog and barn cats and chickens. We have a cow calf herd that lives at my father in laws farm not far from us. My husband is a mechanic and I'm a stay at home wife that does home care for the elderly on the side.
