A little bit about the Tai-abolical clan: My fiancee and I are scientists/foodies/pet lovers currently residing in Houston, TX. We have 1 pug, 1 dachshund, 2 fat cats (1 evil and 1 nice), 2 sun conures, and 1 umbrella cockatoo. We currently do not own any chickens right now however I have been doing a LOT of research (part of my job description really...) and decided that a couple of silkie hens would fit our needs perfectly. Why chickens you asked? Well, we throw away copious amounts of nutritious homemade parrot food daily; which irritates me. Therefore I came up with the idea of keeping a couple of "biological recyclers" in the form of chickens to eat the parrot leftovers. I am also excited about the idea of collecting homegrown eggs from my backyard and perhaps enter in a couple of poultry shows for giggles. In our spare time we really enjoy volunteering at our local parrot sanctuary, making pastries (I've been obsessed with cake balls lately), and hanging out with our pets. That's about it on our end, looking forward to extending a cyber space handshake to the rest of the members.
