(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I got my chickens in the spring of 2019.

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

(3) What breeds do you have? Three RI Reds and 1 Australorp

(4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? Their silly antics and of course the eggs !

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. My husband & I are semi-retired. We have a cat and some fish.

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D I've seen BYC since I started with my chickens. I thought this would be a good way to get answers to all my questions !

Welcome to the BYC forums :welcome

Hope to hear more from you in the coming months. This is my first year with laying hens and every season I have new questions. It's a learning process and what works for you may or may not work for someone else. That's what I find so interesting with this BYC community. So ask your questions and be prepared for a variety of answers.
