Howdy, y'all! My name is Angela and I was adopted by a chicken about a month ago. That may sound strange, and indeed it actually is. To be clear, I never wanted to be a chicken keeper. Two reasons: 1) I am immensely lazy and 2) I am vegan, therefore chickens are not really my thing*. * No judgment; you do you, boo. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? About a month ago I discovered a random hen living in the space under our house. She, like some of the other birds in the area, was feasting on our kitchen scraps (casually thrown into the backyard, because I am also too lazy to compost). Now, I know my neighbours, since this is a rural area. NO ONE has chickens. Except apparently me. So yup, I am new to this. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? One. I named her Daisy. I intend on adopting some chickens in the near future, once I have a chicken coop. (3) What breeds do you have? I think, and I can't be certain, that she is an ISA Brown. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? I found BYC after frantically Googling how to care for chickens, what chickens eat, lost Chickens Redlands area, etc. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I am a gigantic nerd-geek, therefore I play an obscure MMO and Pokemon Go. I like to go Geocaching in cooler months. Eating pizza is also a hobby. The best kind of hobby. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am a cat parent to Theo, full time, "mature age" student studying towards a teaching degree, and I am an old soul that likes crochet, knitting, macrame and art journalling. I like dad jokes. I decided to join today for two reasons - 1) Daisy made one heck of a weird looking egg today (assuming/hoping excess calcium - she did have a tablespoon of yoghurt as a treat yesterday) and 2) a goanna may have given me a heart attack when I looked out my window. I am not cool with adopting a goanna or having one near Miss Daisy. So, hi! Nice to meet you all. Anyone want a goanna?
