Ok here goes!

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

I have raised layers and broilers for 2 years. 1st year broilers I did 15 wanted to ease into it and the second year 66.

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

Well I have 6 layers, 4 pullets and 1 Roo.

(3) What breeds do you have?

The hatchery called them Browns and Special Blacks, my Roo is a white laced Polish and the pullets are Whyndottes.

(4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?

On a personal note I love there personalities, they make me smile, watching them is relaxing.

On the utilitarian side, it is nice to eat food we raised, eggs are delightful, and we have the space.

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

Camping, canoeing, everything outdoors

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

Kids are grown and out of the house, I work in the medical field.

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D

I found this forum while researching a problem I was having with my chickens.
