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

    The most I ever did before Tofu was collect eggs and feed my friends chickens. I honestly wasn't overly found of birds in general, I was attacked by a friends parrot at around 8.

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

    1 Tofu + her sister Riceball (We joke my horse owns her since she always flys out of the chicken yard to hang out with him. Also my horse really does love her. ). a Leghorn recovering from an attack. I also help care for the rest of the flock but Tofu lives alone and most likely won't be going back in with the rest. Riceball live part time with my horses then lives with the rest in the chicken yard at night. She lets herself in and out by flying over the fence.

    (3) What breeds do you have?

    Leghorns + I help care for the flock of Jersey Giants + a few others I am not 100% sure their breed.

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

    Google

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    Horses, Knitting, Beading and Kimono

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

    I am a student, my plan is to get my Vet Tech Cert. Live with my parents helping care for my grandma. We have four horses, a Leopard Gecko, a Cat and our two dogs + the chickens.
