(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
3 one year old adults, 12 chicks

(3) What breeds do you have?
3 Barred Rock adults, 4 Buff Orpington chicks, 2 Barred Rock chicks, 2 Buff Laced Polish chicks, 3 Bantam Cochins

(4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
Fresh eggs, all the different personalities

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
Micro farming, mechanics, computer hardware

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
We have decided a couple of years ago to plow up our 1/8 acre front yard since there was nothing in it and start producing food. We have a few cats, 3 dogs (2 are rescues), and we finally dipped our toes into chicken ownership last spring.

(7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community?
Found BYC the way most newer chicken owners do, "Google! What happens when...".
