    My user name is Crazycomb. I chose this name because it is the name of my favorite chicken! Crazy Comb is a Buff Orpington and has a sideways, silly looking comb![​IMG] She is by far my favorite hen. She is sweet and gentle and is my first broody hen! Love, love, love her!

    Mine is top knot because I got a ''free'' exotic chick with my order. He turned out to be a golden polish with a top knot on his head. So I am now top knot. Crazy

    Mine is just an old password from an long ago abandoned email account. It wasn't even one I chose - it was computer generated. Lots of people think I'm a Boston Redsox fan but I'm really not!

We have 20+ that need to be butchered and we just don't have time ....WHAT DID I DO! I have a Leghorn with chicks! They are not supposed to go broody. I hatched eggs at the fair, why did I do that? I don't even have time to post pictures of our fair chicks and chickens.why do I have so many chickens?

    My original Screen name was Silverfox0786

    the story was behind that is im known as Silverfox and Silverfox786 was always gone but adding the leading Zero (0) was always available

    but then just for this forum as all other forums I am still silverfox0786 I changed it to

    Habib's Hens

    and that is because that's what I call my homestead

    Habib is my eldest sons name and really everything I own belongs to him so it was fitting to name after him

    My username is based on our first ever chicken, Peep. He was a sweet, loyal RIR rooster. Having Peep is what got me into having chickens, and I thought it would only be right to have his name be part of my username in remembrance of him. And of course, he was a chicken, so I went with ChickenPeep.
    RIP, my sweet Peeper boy. :)
