Hi! (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? No, this is my 4th year with chickens, originally got them just for eggs, but as they grew, died, gave some to friends in need, got new ones, they are now my babies, and like my other pets I am proud to spoil and love them! (2) How many chickens do you have right now? One adult, 9 baby chicks (3) What breeds do you have? I have one Gold laced Wynodette that I have had for 4 years. She is free range, and I just bought 2 Giant Cochins chicks, and 7 silkie chicks. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Facebook and google (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Working out, working in the yard, photography (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have a 10 yr old, and a 15 yr old, married 20 years, love to spend time with my children, love to work out, stay active. I recently lost 120 pounds and it changed my life forever!! I have three dogs who all are inside and two sleep with me, all my babies. I have a cat that does her own thing, but so sweet. I am a preschool teacher and work 40 weeks out of the year so I enjoy that.
