    Long time reader, first time member, I've finally made the leap! Here goes nothing as they say!

    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes and no, we moved to the country a little over a year ago, but almost immediately bought chickens right after.

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

    5 Lavender Orpingtons, 3 Lavender Bantams, 6 Easter eggers, 6 Cuckoo Maran, and 1 lavender chick

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    Oops, already answered that. ‍♀️

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

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I LOVE to draw and paint.
    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have two little ones that I currently homeschool, a greyhound named Luna, two barn cats named KJ and Darby, and a wonderful hubby married 7 years but in love much longer than that. We plan to get goats goats, broilers and bees in the next year or so.

    (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 dealing with a few things that I can't quite figure out on Google alone so I figured it would be better to finally join the fun!
