    [​IMG]Hello, my name is Leah.[​IMG] I just joined Backyard Chickens (really I have chickens in my backyard!!!). I've been raising chickens for about 4 years now. I have had over 35 chickens including: pullets, hens, and roosters. Every chicken I have owned I have raised since it was 1 day old. My special little Ameraucana Easter Egger hen "Donut"(which I call her my daughter quite often) has won Reserved Grand Champion, 1st place, and 2nd place in competitions.[​IMG]All my chickens have won from Reserved Grand Champ to 6th place in competition. Due to unfortunate circumstances many of my chickens have been killed[​IMG] by wild animals, stolen, and had to sell. So I have been left with 3 wonderful great pets and family. I will be selling two of them in January after the stock show here in Texas. I am unable to keep the two due to living with my parents(and they dont like chickens). So I will still keep Donut(my winning hen) as a remembrance of everything of chickens. When I live on my own I will be looking for my hens to keep my Donut company. I hope that my knowledge of chickens will continue to increase and my love for them to grow even more![​IMG]
