(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

Not new to chickens. I got my first chickens in 2005. My husband and in-laws thought we should get them to raise to eat...lol; they all ended up my pets.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?

I have 45 chickens right now.

(3) What breeds do you have?

Even though I have had chickens, I am still not an expert on breeds but I am pretty sure this is how they break down.

6 Aracuana (EEG?)
4 Bantams
30 white chicks that were hatched at a local school as a project and then when the kids were done they needed homes. I have no idea what they are.
1 Large White Rooster
2 Buffs
1 Red
1 ????? cutie pie

(4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

I have been a lurker here since I first got chickens.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

Anything outside, in the pool, hiking, fishing. Shopping, mani/pedi time, reading... BBQ with the family.
