    Hello my name is Michelle 1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    my grandmother had a few 100 chickens while I was growing up but never had my own till now. I started with 2 old girls last year and dont even know what they were and 10 Buff Op's (dont know how to spell it.. ) I was lucky to get 3-5 eggs a day so I just started getting more to up my egg production. Sitll with 21 I am lucky to get 10.
    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I have 21 hens right now ,
    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I have 10 buffs, 5 golden commets, 1 that is susposed to be and an black ameraucana (but she lays Brown eggs) 3 white hens (unknown) (lay white eggs)and 2 real colorful hens that lay brown eggs. (unknown)
    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Still not happy with my egg production so I was researching to see what I was doing wrong and found this site, thought I would give it a shot,
    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I do alot of trail ridding in the warmer mths, I have 3 horses and a mini that is due to foal in Dec. I rescue horses and dogs, just when I can, I am not a rescue. that and the ol'man the chickens and the normal day to day keep me on my toes.
    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    My kids are grown and on thier own, its just me the ol'man and the critters now I used to drive a truck but my lic. was taken away due to a medical con. which is what got me into chicken... trying to make a little bit of extra income to help out.

    I hope you don't get tired of all the questions I do and will have.. I look forward to picking your brains.. lol
