    Hello there! I'm Liv.

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    I got my chickens as a Christmas present so I got them in December and it is probably the best gift I've ever received.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I had 4 but sadly one of my chickens has sadly departed because of a virus.

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I now have 1 Silkie, 1 Araucana, and 1 Wyandotte.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    I was trying to find a good feeder and waterer and I just remembered it now and wanted to join.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I love love love horse riding, art, and food. If food is a hobby?
    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have a very big family since my parents divorced and got remarried to new people I have lots of step brothers and sisters. I have 4 stepbrothers, 3 sisters, and 4 stepsisters. I have 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 fish. I am still in high school so I don't really have a fulltime job but I did work at a pony rides place for 4 months. I am a huge fan of horror movies. Off topic but yeah I'll watch anything scary except for Syfy because, in my opinion, I find it all very fake and it just doesn't scare me as much as say a paranormal film.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and I look forward to chatting with you all.

    G'Day from FNQ Liv :frowWelcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    Please do check out the Topic of the Week discussions Pork Pie mentioned. I have found these to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock and/or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    You might want to also visit the Aussie Thread and pop in and say hello.
