1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We are new to chickens, but they are fascinating. Better than any TV show to just watch.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
We got 5 chicks in late March. So they are about 13 weeks old now.

(3) What breeds do you have?
We have a white cochin, and 4 others 🙃 Would have to look at the receipt from the chicken breeder to be sure. Maybe at some point I'll post photos here to get everyone's input.

(4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
So far, just trying to figure it all out.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
My wife likes gardening. We also have a new hive of bees, but that hasn't been going as well. Maybe need to join a bee community too! Me I like games.

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
Got a couple of college kids who like to surf and a 12 year old golden doodle who likes chickens (to eat!). Sadly, his chicken catching days are probably over; but he still dreams...

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D
Found via Google trying to look up what the heck kind of chicken was our cochin.
