    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Nope, I'm not new to chickens. I've had them for well over 15 years now, but it doesn't hurt to learn something new. :3

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Currently, I have about 35 4 month old youngins, 7 young chicks barely 2 months old, and about 2-3 dozen adults, give or take.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Easter Egger, White Leghorn, Black Australop, Barred Plymouth Rock, Gold-Laced Wyandotte, Silver-Laced Wyandotte, Rhode Island, Brahma, Red Cross and White Crested Black Polish Bantam. Some of my hens are crossed with EE and Columbian White but I have no pureblood Columbian anymore.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Through searching for random questions about chickens out of curiosity.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Reading, writing.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Other animals I have are a couple dogs, a bunch of cats, some rabbits, Pearl Guineas, and a bunch of Khaki Campbell ducks (not including the wildlife).
