    Hey, name's Abron! My family and I recently (3 years ago?) got back into raising chickens. Of course ours are part of the family, all of the big hens know their names and try to sit in our laps (and sometimes hop into the back of the car when we're getting groceries out!). We currently have 5 Golden Comets (Apples, Sienna, Flo, Jacky, and Daphne), 2 RIR/Austro mixes (Nora and Lilly), and Nora's daughter who is 1/2 comet, 1/4 RIR, and 1/4 Austro, Otter. Those are all of our adult hens (8). We also picked up 9 baby Old English Game bantams last Friday, but lost one yesterday. They are: Mini, Nickie, Piplup, Snickers, Truffles, Peachy, Dotty, and Kyne.

    So, a little about me! I'm a high school student interested in some feild of Biology leaning on arachnology, herpatology, or arthropology. As you can see by my career choices, I love many animals but am partial to reptiles and bugs. My family owns a small hobby farm consisting of horses, dogs, cats, chickens, and ducks. I myself own 3 betta fish, 4 tarantulas, 1 scorpion, 3 leopard geckos, 2 gerbils, and 2 rabbits. I have yet to meet any one of our animals who isn't extremely personable. Even the tarantulas and scorpion have very different personalities!

    I am also interested in reading, writing, and 2D drawing. I'd rather like to get some novels published some day. Another little dream of mine is to someday write and illustrate short stories.

    So, it's nice to meet you!

    Hey! Welcome to BYC! Glad to have you here! I also love animals, but I only have 4 chickens, 2 guinea pigs, and a couple of goldfish. I'm hoping to get a few more chickens soon though!

    Well aren't you interesting!!! I too am a highschool student that is about to enter an animal career. Although not quite as exotic as yours mine is Animal Control. Not a real big interest in insects(unless there in my garden) or reptiles(got the up-down from a chameleon the other day,all I can say is CREEPY but cute!) I have a ton of chickens, a ton and a half of rabbits, ducks, three dogs, a cat and a guinea pig. And I love goats but do not own one yet. I love to draw chibi's and some manga but I'm not to good at it! Welcome to BYC!

    Abron [​IMG] don't dream about writing short stories & illustrating them - DO IT!!

    Some people on here self published, took them into book stores etc. Gave copies to schools etc. INterest was generated and they were on their way. Doesn't have to be about chickens, or kids stories. Get it down and see what happens. Alot of places have short story contests etc.

    You could even post your story or excerpts on BYC (start your own thread) and see what feedback you get. I have a feeling you have talent galore. I used to write for dog magazines (not very glamorous) in high school. I know I'd love to see your stories.
