    1. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? 2 years ago for this flock, but have been with chickens all my life.

      (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Just 13. But also have 9 bronze turkeys, 2 Toulouse Dewlap geese, 7 ducks, a cow, a dog, a cat and a partridge in a pear tree.

      (3) What breeds do you have? Silkies, Mille Fluer D’uccl, golden lace Orpingtons, Pekin, Cayuga and Muscovy ducks.

      (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? They are all so beautiful and are kind of like therapy, just make me happy.

      (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I am currently a nursing student and that pretty much takes all my time.

      (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am married to the same great man for 22 years, we have 3 kids and 1 grandson.

      (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? upload_2019-1-12_11-50-17.png

      I referenced the site frequently about concerns that I had.

    Welcome to BYC. Sounds like you have a lot going on. I'm glad you've found the website useful in that past and I hope it continues to be so. I would love to see pictures of your gold laced Orpingtons. That's an unusual variety.
