    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I am new to chickens. My sister lives on a vineyard and has them and has been trying to convince me to get some for years. My son built a chicken tractor with his grandfather, who also has chickens, and then we got chickens. Have had them for about a month now.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Three females of differing ages. One is laying-really just started laying consistently this past week, one has laid 2 soft eggs-very erratic schedule, one is about 10 weeks old.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Buff Orphington
    RIR/Ameraucana mix
    RIR/?? mix

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

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Gardening, Hiking, Ponding, DIY stuff.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Single mom with a long-term boyfriend. 2 teenage sons. 3 aquatic turtles, countless goldfish and frogs, 3-4 catfish, 2 cats. I'm a freelance graphic designer.
