Hello BYC! I've actually been here for over a year but I've just found out about the sample question template!! Also, my first post was about trying to save a weak duckling I had, so I've never properly introduced myself! Here goes: (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I'm not very new to chickens. I got my flock in January last year, but my mother kept chickens before that. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? Eight. (3) What breeds do you have? Rhode Island Reds. I want to get some Silver-laced Wyandottes this year though. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I'm not actually sure when. I'd been looking around for a while before I actually joined. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I like gardening, photography, cooking and baking, farming and keeping chickens! (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I live on a farm in East Sussex. I have a cat called Smudge (who I adore). I sorta guess my occupation is selling chickens!
