    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I raised 2 Rhode Island Reds when I was 12. I'm now 37 with 2 teenagers of my own. Together with my children, my loving boyfriend and our friendly dog Bailey, we got our chickens about 8 weeks ago (March 2017)

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

    Right now we have 7

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    2 Rhode Island Reds and 5 Golden Buff Orpingtons

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I was Googling questions about chicken coops and found your website.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I love to read romance novels, write on my Sheerchaos . net blog. When I'm not doing those things, I'm growing plants and flowers, relaxing on the porch swing with Ms.Bailey

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I'm a full-time working mom where I mostly help my boss manage his day at our lumber mill. I make cupcakes as a side job. When I'm not at work or elbow deep in cake batter, I write on my blog. We rescued a dog from our local shelter. She's a wire haired terrier.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I enjoyed your interesting introduction, especially about being "elbow deep in cake batter," I've certainly enjoyed a lot of cupcakes in my life though in my golden years (?) I've switched to ice cream. I'm an indoor gardener, who hybridizes Streptocarpus plants, used to show & breed Cocker Spaniels.

    Hope you will enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. [​IMG]
