    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Very new! Hubby decided it might be fun-turns out I’m the one actually loving it!

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 13

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    Turkens and black chicks I’m not quite sure of yet. That’s why I’m here!

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
    Eggs, hopefully! It’s sort of an adventure-and I’m discovering all sorts of things I never knew when into raising them.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Reading and art

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Family of four, with a cockatiel,a gecko,a dog...and now 13 chickens.

    Welcome to BYC. I hope you enjoy exploring the website-- there is a lot to see. I think you'll enjoy having turkens. They are a nice all around breed, and they will definitely give you plenty of eggs.

    I had a Madagascar Day Gecko, Gertrude. She was formerly known as Gus when I ‘adopted’ her. Once I discovered eggs in her terrarium a name change was in order. Also had a few Komoros Day Geckos, they mated and against all odds hatched babies. I also had a leopard gecko for a number of years
