(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? New to owning chickens, I have successfully raised ducks in the past and I winged that!

(2) How many chickens do you have right now? 9 chicks currently, unless the husband brings home more unexpectedly when picking up more feed (3) What breeds do you have? 4 Jersey Giants, 1 Easter Egger, 2 Production Reds and was told 2 Barred Rock but that is in question if that is what they really are. (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens? Eggs (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Read books when I can (more along the lines of Audible when I am driving by myself) barrel race and raise Frenchies (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. 7 horses, 2 goats, 9 chickens and 3 dogs (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community?
