Hello everyone, my name is Sarah, but you can call me birb mom. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? I am completely new to chickens. I picked up my first chicks just a few days ago, but I've always adored chickens and birds in general. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 6 little females. (3) What breeds do you have? Ameraucana! I'm loving the breed so far. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I found out about the site through my efforts to learn as much as much as I could about chickens. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I really enjoy writing and drawing, particularly digital art. I use a Wacom Intuos Draw. As far as writing goes, I prefer fantasy and sci-fi. I've been writing ever since I was able to and creating stories even before then. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am only 17 years old, so I still live with my parents and my twin sister. We live in a quaint house in the redwood forests of Northern California. I have two big dogs(bears), that I love to pieces and have owned for about 7 or 8 years now. There is a goldendoodle named Winnie who ironically has black fur, and a scruffy white labradoodle named Rocket. As for occupation, I am unemployed now but will be employed soon at my local icecream parlor. I am a Junior in high school. I love my chicks dearly and have barely spent a waking hour away from them. I am happy to meet new people who also love chickens and to see all your beautiful feathery children!
