(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
Brand new. Grew up (partly) in the Hill Country on a ranch, so horses and cows I know. We never had chickens.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
8 7-week old girls.

(3) What breeds do you have?
4 Easter Eggers; 1 Buff Orpington; 1 Lavendar Orpington, 1 Cream Legbar, and 1 Cuckoo Maran.

(4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
So far - they are just hilarious. Absolutely love watching them.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
Love to cook/bake, but that's not really a hobby. Love to read, quilt, stitch, sketch, do ink drawings.

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
My six-word memoir: Wearing black, covered in dog hair. Golden retrievers, long-haired dachshunds, and a 33 year old African Grey parrot.

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D
BYC is the first thing that comes up on the google, and the most consistent source of great answers. I truly appreciate this site, and consult it often. I joined a bit back, but am finally introducing myself because I am playing hooky, and very happy about it. :)
