    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    We've had laying hens for a few years now. We just got our first rooster today though.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? What breeds do you have?
    19 hens (Barred Rock, Ameraucana & Rhode Island Reds) and 1 rooster (Black Australorp)

    (3) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I've been on here before, under a prior email address - which changed when we moved. My cousin told me about it years ago.

    (4) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Skiing, Cub Scouts with my boys, outdoor activities

    (5) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I've been with my husband for 15+ years. I am an at-home mom to two boys: Hunter (6) and Jack (5). We also have 3 steers, 4 dogs, and wild turkeys that visit us daily. We live on acreage in the small town of Central Point, Oregon located in the beautiful Rogue Valley.
