    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? We are very new to chickens- only have had our girls for about a couple of months.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now? We have three hens.

    (3) What breeds do you have? An australorp, rhode island red and a bantam of some sort. I really have no idea what little one is. Cute is what she is. :)

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I googled pretty everything I could about chickens and this site has been the most informative and helpful.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies? Hobbies? Well the beach, shopping, reading.

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. We are a pretty busy family but manage it well. If I put out there our life story no one would believe we manage well!
