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

    I thought I'd respond to the template as it seems easy enough! I am sort of new to chickens. I have been working with them for around 5 years but was totally new when I started so still learning.

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

    I have 3 breeds right now.

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    I don't know as I go by white egg layer, blue, and brown! I know, I am so scientific! I do know I have Ercona (probably misspelled) and Leg Horn as well as one other that I am not totally sure what she is, possibly Rhode Island?

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

    I used to have the magazine.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    Music and Animals. I also dabble a bit in gardening.

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

    I have a daughter that lives in California, my husband and 2 sons live here with me. My sons are teenagers. We have a dog, a cat, 2 guinea pigs and 18 hens as well as 2 pigs. We used to have 2 Black Angus cows but they are gone now and too much work to winter. I work part time as a Chiropractic Assistant and am into health and wellness so I do like to raise my own meats.
