    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I am very new with chickens! I've always thought they were amazing though, got my first chicken about over a month ago.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Sadly only one, but will get more in the near future!

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I am unsure of what breed my chicken is.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I've been trying to look for good information and tips for chicken owning! I couldn't find a better site than here.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I'm a lover of music and animals.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I live in a small mountain area, away from the nearby town. I have four cats and my chicken Hazel! I work for a store my farm family owns in town.

    It's nice to meet you all! <3

    I appreciate your quick reply to my first thread and how kind you are already!

    For sure! I recently posted about the chicken's gender and it's apparently a rooster! ^^
    I'll be getting some hens for him as soon as I can <3

    I'm hoping some breeds like Hazel! I've gotten many ideas of what Hazel is, such as welsummer, maran, and brown leghorn. It's hard because Hazel was born out of chick season!
