    Three

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    California White and Plymouth Barred Rock

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

    Web search

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    Running, reading, snow skiing, volunteering with an adaptive ski program, and enjoying being a beloved child of God

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

    I am in the oil and gas business, am married to the love of my life, with a blended family of 6 amazing children, one incredible daughter-in-law, and two brilliant granddaughters. We have 2 smart and entertaining dogs and a very busy life. We are blessed.

    Greetings from Texas! We too have a blended family of six children. And we share ten beautiful and brilliant children, who love to come feed the chickens and gather eggs. You'll enjoy this site.
