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

    I have no prior experience with chickens, but I've always wanted them.

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

    I bought 15 easter egger pullets. I ended up with 14 pullets and 2 cockerels. I'm not sure what to do with the two roosters at this point. Looking for suggestions!.

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    Just Easter Eggers.

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

    I was following a forum about other people's color combinations with EE's and I was hooked.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    Urban farming, painting, drawing, crocheting, knitting, woodworking, and punching stuff.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    My husband and I decided that we were tired of produce at the store so he quit his job as a heavy machine mechanic in January and we've been farming ever since. We have two pitiful pit bulls and I work at a self defense gym.

    Welcome to BYC! As for your roosters, try to keep them, they are a great addition to any flock!

    I want to! I'm just worried about them not having enough hens to hang out with!
