    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I got my first chickens on June first 2018. So fairly new to chicken ownership.
    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I currently own 6 chickens but am looking to rehome my roo.
    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I have all bantams and they are *drum roll* 2 Easter Eggers, a welsummer, a 2 buff brahma, and a little mille fluer.
    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Whenever I Google questions you're the first result and the answers are always pretty darn spot on.
    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Video gaming mostly
    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    My husband and I live in an urban suburb (cuz that's a thing now) and we have a dog and a cat which like to patrol our flocks pen.
    I'm I safety coordinator at a factory and my husband is a professor at a college. I've always wanted to own a small homestead so chicken keeping was my way of starting out while still living in the city.
    (7) Bonus:what made you finally join
    I finally joined because I had one of my brahma start making a weird noise at 6am and really needed to know if it was a roo or just a weird hen.
