    My name is Natanya, as you may have surmised, and I just got 6 Silkie chicks shipped in from Cackle Hatchery. Alongside my roommates's 5 golden laced Sebrights I currently live with 11 baby chickens.

    The artist Nambroth's work lead me to her BYC thread documenting the epic of the chicken known as Derperella, which I now consider to be a must-read thread.

    I am an artist. I wish to create a career using my artistic ability, but unfortunately my skill and ambition outmatch my confidence. My work can be found here: (though I haven't made much recently as I'm learning to cope with the stress of trying to get my feet under myself financially.)

    Here's a few choice pieces from the art I've made:

    My favorite hobby is animal keeping. I have one cat, one goldfish, two corn snakes, two pigeons, one green tree frog, one quaker parrot, one budgie, and my most recent additions are 5 chickens.

    I'm easily frightened off of forums, so please be gentle.

    We're a pretty gentle crowd around here... Above all things, don't be frightened off. Some folks may be very direct--but they mean no harm. :oops:
