    Hi!

    I have been lurking and enjoying and decided to join. Okay - I'll try to answer these correctly. [​IMG]

    1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am not new to chickens. We moved out of the big city about 20 years ago and bought a farm that came with chickens. I did have to ask the farmer how you got the eggs from the chickens though. [​IMG]

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? about 35

    (3) What breeds do you have? we have a brown egg layer assortment including White Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, Turkens and Wyandottes

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

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? reading, cooking, gardening

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I have seven children - mostly grown 11 grandchildren by the end of the year 5 acres with a big garden and fruit trees 2 big dogs 1 house cat 7 barn cats I love to bake bread, can, cook, and I write for a living.
