(The last time I tried to write an introductory post I wasn't even logged in. Behold my forum skills.) Anyways, I'm Feathyr, hobomom's daughter. She decided it was time I quit stealing - er, borrowing her account and create my own. I've been raising chickens of varying breeds for eight years; my favorites are heritage RIR, Favorelles, Easter Eggers, Silkies, and Welsumers. In terms of other animals I have a quarter horse gelding, goats, dogs, cats, a goose, and a duck. My other interests aside from chickens include all forms of art, reading, writing, ballet, and modern dance.
