    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We moved to a 10 acre property 8 years ago and have had chickens for the past 7 years.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Currently we have 9 ISA Brown and 1 Black Copper Marans hen and 2 BCM roosters

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? We love the fresh eggs for ourselves and to share with family and friends. My three-year old granddaughter LOVES to gather eggs and pet them.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Anything outdoors and active - gardening, jogging, bicycling, hiking - breathing FRESH AIR

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We own and husband manages bike and fitness shops, we have 3 dogs, 2 teens still at home; an adult daughter, a son who died last fall of an overdose and his sweet daughter; I work in healthcare, providing health and wellness services direct to employers

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? We have used your forum as a resource for many years and he may actually already be a member...

    Earth Lover seems like a perfect name for you -- and with a job, kids, chickens, dogs and that sweet granddaughter, it sounds like you need some outdoors relaxation!

    I am sorry for the loss of your son; I have a family member who struggles with addiction and the fear that someday he might end the same way is always in the back of my mind.

    Welcome to this group of great people, and keep enjoying those eggs!!
