    I copied the sample questions, so here goes:

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? First got into chickens in March of this year.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have 4 Rhode Island Reds, 3 Leghorns, 5 Barred Rock, and 1 Silkie

    (3) What breeds do you have? see #2

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? a friend who raises chickens told me about it.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Raise rabbits and dogs, we garden, we fish, hunt, and pretty much do anything outdoors

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I am a nurse, my husband is a Navy veteran, we have 4 kids still in elementary and middle school. We are trying to live a self-reliant lifestyle as much as we can, and try to do more everyday to further that cause.
    We are Christians, and praise the Lord every day for a happy and healthy family and flock!

    Welcome to BYC! You have come to the coolest place on the internet for chicken knowledge.

    I started with chickens last summer and the people of BYC have been great. This year I have tried hatching and buying chicks for even more chickeny joy. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.
