    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes, I've had other fowl, but new to chickens.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? (3) What breeds do you have?
    A half dozen each of Australorps and Bielefelder's (As well as Moscovy's, Pilgrim Geese, Bronze heritage turkeys, hair sheep)

    (4) How did you find out about
    Internet search, I've been lurking for a couple years and decided to sign up last night.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Volunteer work around the world, building things from scratch, designing. And once in a while - sleeping.

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

    I own a international software company, live on an acreage, raise a small menagerie of animals, and have 4 foster children under the age of 4. We got the Australorps at the request of our two older foster kids after visiting the Stampede and the one said 'I want a black chicken'. (We had already been thinking about getting some chickens to add to our flerd and had already been thinking Australorps - we had just days before made arrangements to get the Bielefelder's and figured why not.)
