    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I bought a log home on five acres 3 years ago and wanted chickens from day one! I just got my first chickens 10 weeks ago!

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 14

    (3) What breeds do you have? I have 9 lavender orpingtons, 2 splash orpingtons, 2 blue orpingtons and 1 black orpington

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? 2 years of searching for chicken information before talking my husband into raising chickens!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Chickens are now my hobby... before that it was ONLY running the kids around for their hobbies!

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have four kids (three boys, one girl), 2 golden retrievers, 2 guinea pigs, 1 cat, 1 hamster and 14 chickens!

    Wow. It sounds like you have your hands full. Life is too short so I say bring on all the animals and hobbies galore. Your family and five acres sounds awesome. Hope you enjoy the forum and welcome. Angela (dsquawker)
