    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes and no. I had chickens in 2010-2011. Moved to metro Detroit and am now back in the thumb.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    None. Getting by babies Valentines Day. 4

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    We will be getting 1 of each...Buff Orpington, Easter Egger, Barred Rock and Black Astralop Subject to change.

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
    Watching the babies grow and fresh eggs.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    All kinds of crafts. Painting ceramics, crochet, felt flowers and beading.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    My grandmother was 100 yrs 6 months and 15 days old when she passed away. My mother is 91. I have been told so many times about longevity, I really don't want to live quite that long. I am #5 out of 6. My husband and I have been married 5 yrs. (Lost my first husband 6 days after my father in 09). And we are inseperable. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. We are both retired and are just getting started on our new homested. 3 acres are good enough for us. Moving in December is not a good choice but we did it. Wish us luck.

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

    I have been going thru one site after another learning everything I can about baby chicks. Starting from scratch again (no pun intended). Tonight I found you and so many interesting people and conversations that I felt this is where I belonged. Thank you in advance for All Your Help. Monti.

    Thank you. I am trying to figure out where to start leaving questions. I am not savvy to some of the things I need to do. Great site by the way.
