(1)  Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?

I worked on a community farm when I left school aged 16.  I took two chickens home and set them up in the outhouse.  When my parents came back off vacation they went nuts andtting him made me take them back.  When I was at animal care college one of the other students needed a home for her Chinese painted quail as her father had threatened to kill it.  I ended up getting him a mate and breeding and incubating the eggs


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

Sadly nothing since then.  Still want a big space to have dogs, chickens and goats

(3)  What breeds do you have?

(4)  How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?

I reached out for advice when I heard my neighbour had rescued a feral chicken chick

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?

I'm a scuba instructor, I like to swim, play volleyball and foster puppies from the Cayman Human Society

(6)  Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

I sadly do not have pets.  I live in a first floor apartment and only being here 10 months don't feel I can commit to pet ownership yet.

Hi D Diva and welcome to BYC - great to have you join us. I hope that you are able to get some chickens of your own soon - strangely addictive. I used to be a sub-aqua instructor many moon ago - love diving, but haven't done it in years sadly.

 

All the best

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

I think you need to browse the  "people with house chickens," thread.   One little bantam  hen or  two would do great in your apartment.  Something tiny like a serama.  They handle confinement very well and were bred in Malaysia to be house pets.  Plus they can always pass  as "exotic cage birds."

 

My friend has 2 serama hens and one silkie  as house pets.  But she has had house pet chickens for over 25 years, it's just a way of life to her.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
