    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

    We first got chickens in April 2013. We bought some and rescued some and ended up with 4 roosters!

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


    18

    (3) What breeds do you have?


    9 Red Sexlinks
    1 California White
    8 random bantmans. I'm not sure of the breeds but they all look different.

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


    Searching on the internet to learn more about chickens.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?


    Cat rescue. Stand up comedy.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.


    My husband and I started an organic farm in March 2013. The chickens are our pets. We love the eggs but when they stop producing we will still love them. We are vegetarians. We have seven rescued cats as well. I am a vet tech at a veterinary office and at a cat sanctuary.

    I have a few minutes of set dedicated to my chickens! Mostly because they are named after Star Wars characters. We have one rooster named Darth Vader and another rooster named Anakin. This is not written like a joke, just a story.

    Darth Vader tries to attack me whenever he can and one day Anakin came up and started puffing up like Vader. I thought he was going to attack me as well but he went after Vader. I think there is hope in this world.
