Hi, I'm Azz, and I keep winding up back here when I'm looking for pictures of chickens and fun stories. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? My family got chickens when I was about 9 years old. My Calico quickly became my best friend and tried to eat my books as I read them. I miss her very much. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? I don't have any right now, but eventually I'll likely have them again. (3) What breeds do you have? None right now, but I grew up with Egyptian Fayoumis, Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Golden & Silver Sebright, Araucana, Belgian Antwerp Quail, Old English banties, and the odd Black Langshan. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Every now and then I search for chicken pictures, and I usually wind up here among a few other places. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I write, crochet, and volunteer for Open Source Software projects.
