    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I started my first flock on Wednesday, fairly new to chickens, I do care for a small flock at work as well.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I have 5 chicks

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    2 - silver ameraucanas
    2 - hedemoras
    1 - lemon pyle brahma

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
    I just adore chickens and their eggs as well. I would never buy a pure bred dog or cat knowing the state of over population of shelters but I feel with chickens I can buy fancy breeds and not feel selfish.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Camping
    Gardening

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I am a veterinary technician - small animal
    I share my home with 5 dogs (terra, sheldon, lenny, penny and my most recent addition a blind puppy who is yet to be named, i call him puppy) 4 cats (wilson, anime, nilly and aero) all the above rescued from local shelters.

    (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 have been reading the forums for almost a year now since I started researching backyard chickens in preparation for becoming a new chicken momma. I decided to join in case I need advice with my new flock.
