    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    - I am new to chickens. They've been a dream of mine to have. I first got mine almost a month ago.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    - I have 7 hens currently.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    - I have one buff orpington, 4 barred rock (my fave) and 2 rhode island reds.

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
    - I just like animals, but I really enjoy the farm feeling as well as the fresh eggs. I've never had them and always wanted them.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    - when I have time (full time single mother, employee and student) I blog and I'm working on a book.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    - I work in an office as an office admin. I go to school for criminal justice. I have 2 kids full time who are 12 tomorrow (my boy) and my girl will be 11 in feb. We currently have our 7 chicks, one dog, one cat, 2 beta fish and 2 bearded dragons.

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

    - I've been googling how to's on these chicks since I got them and have been led to this site every time. I just love this community!

    Here's the blog in case you're just curious! I'm currently working on a blog for them specifically. AshlyPashlee
