    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I've had chickens for 8 years. Ducks for almost a year. Still learning and loving my girls.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Right now I have 26 birds total (2 ducks)
    (3) What breeds do you have?

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? I love learning their personalities! They are so sweet and funny! They truly amaze me!

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I'm a mom. So I love to be a part of what my kids are involved in. My daughter plays volleyball so I love watching her play while she has a little time left in high school. And my son is in robotics and drama club so that's always fun to watch.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. Other than what I've already said, my kids keep me busy. Would'nt change it for the world! We also have a pup and cat. Love our little family

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? Found out about it because I had to Google some info on how to help my sick girl Muffin. And since so much info was available figured it would a great choice

    @Smallpkgtnt - Welcome to BYC! :welcome

    Whoa, what a flock you have! 26 birds (and adorable ducks) is a handful! How have you enjoyed having ducks? I am so happy to hear you like watching and learning the personalities of your chickens. Also, good on you for being involved with your children and their interests too!

    You found us the way alot of folks do- an internet search leads you to helpful subjects. Glad you decided to join us! Hopefully your girl Muffin is doing better? I've found alot of info here, and hopefully you will see just how helpful and informative folks are here too.

    We'd love to hear more about your chickens! (Also, photos are always welcome!)
