    1) Are you new to chickens /when did you first get chickens? I have been a chicken sitter for my aunt and uncle’s flock but these are our first. We got 3 pullets about 3 weeks ago.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have 3 hens

    (3) What breeds do you have? We have 1 Easter Egger, 1 Black Star and 1 Buff Orphington

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? My aunt suggested it and I have looked at it before for answers to chicken questions.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Gardening, baking, arts & crafts

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I’m a stay at home mom to our toddler son and expecting one more this winter! We also have two older rescue dogs.
