All About Me! by Nambroth

Heyyy guys! Here is everything you probably need to know about me:

I am a person! I live and exist and contain atoms and occasionally fart.

I'm in my 30s but have the sense of humor of a 7 year old and the BS tolerance of a 70 year old.

I make a lot of things and I love making things, and sometimes we call it ART and that's all okay by me. I'm super excited to make most of it and I'm even more excited to know that people might like to look at it sometimes.

I LOVE EVERY BIRD. I really love birds.

I am completely obsessed with chickens and I will not shut up about them if you get me talking about them. Be careful. I warned you. This is your warning.

I am actually quite shy but do my best to be friendly. I am pretty laid back about things and think most people are pretty darn cool as long as they are not jerks. :)

Now then, stealing Likeshine's idea... if you have any specific questions you are curious about I'd be happy to answer. :)

All About Me!

    What's your favourite song/performer? =}

    • Link

      This is a really hard question! I have a lot of varied tastes, but over the years I keep coming back to Opeth and Porcupine Tree. :)

    What's your favorite breed of chicken? =D

    • Link

      I love so many of them!! There are many beautiful breeds out there and Belgian D'Anvers and Sumatras are super beautiful... but of all the breeds I've owned, I love the personalities of the cochins best, I think.

      • Link

        Oh wow, those Belgian and Sumatran breeds really are pretty! I admit I know very little about chickens so seeing how varied all the different types are is actually pretty wild! Are the phenotypes bred just for looks or are there any sort of practical traits that breeders look for? like the difference between toy/show dog breeds and working dog breeds?

        • Link

          The answer to your question is: YES!
          Or, really, both. Chickens are bred both for looks and for utility. Like many dog breeds, lately the trend has been to take them mostly into good appearances, and some breeders have sacrificed utility, but that's a complex discussion.
          Overall, chickens have been bred for purpose and appearance, yes. Some of the obvious purposes are things such as: 1. Laying good eggs frequently 2. Growing into a meaty bird for food. However, historically, chickens have also had to do things like be good mothers (good broody hens), deal with the ability to forage well in different environments, etc. And, sadly, a few breeds have been refined for fighting. Some have been bred for good temperament, though.
          Just like with dogs, there are a plethora of goals that breeders have.

    How did you get into chickens and raising them? Always so curious to hear how people went about it as I hopefully will get some someday. I find them to be curious birds.

    • Link

      I'd always wanted chickens, but never lived in a place where I could keep them. Then, once we bought a house, I became a research nut and read about them for two years until we could afford to build the coop, run, and the chickens themselves.

    All the birds? :}

  • Link

    What are some favorite bird species?

    • Link

      AHHHHH How do I answer this!
      I love chickens (obviously). All galliformes, really. I also really like harriers, and Philippine's eagles, and hornbills, and barbets, and bustards, and goliath herons, bitterns, tits, ahhh so many I can't!

      • Link

        Those are definitely all great! When it comes to eagles, for some reason I've always liked the Steller's Sea Eagle.

    I just have to say that I never 'got' chickens and love for them until my brother got several. My god. I could stare at and chase and hold them forever. Endlessly fascinated by their internal gyroscope, also how they sound like disapproving Ladies of Society so often

    "I'm in my 30s but have the sense of humor of a 7 year old and the BS tolerance of a 70 year old."

    Ah christ, that sounds like me.

    • Link

      As for questions, you wanna sit on a park bench with me sometime and complain about kids and their music?

      • Link

        Yes, this sounds acceptable.

        • Link

          Excellent.

  • Link

    haha that was a great description X3

    When did you first start drawing? When did you discover you love birds so much? :3

    • Link

      The answer to both is: The moment I started having memories. I've done both for as long as I can remember!!
      I have only been drawing "seriously" or, with intent to get better/have a career of it, since I was about 18.

      • Link

        great! I find it interesting to learn about when artists first start out.

    If bird is the word, and everyone was talking about the bird, which word would describe the said bird, and why would everyone be talking about it? - hope this question isn't too personal.

    • Link

      Bird is a word, one out of approximately 170,000 words currently in use in the English language as counted in commonly published dictionaries.
      The and Word are also both words.
      Therefore if Bird is The Word, as in The Spoken Word, I would suggest that I could not possibly fit all of those words into a single comment and you will have to take MY word for it that the bird is in fact every word because I LOVE EVERY BIRD

        <3 Thank you for that thoughtful and measured response <3

    Oh my, chickens. spent the past week at my brother, and his eldest has two. didn't remember until sitting on the patio, a pair of GIANT BIRDS walk up on either side of my chair and give me the eye (and then peck at the ground around my ceck chair. THEY WERE HUGE I TELL YOU!!!, Big enough that the dogs and cats in the household gave them a wide berth. They would then stately pace to the Deck, and star in the sliding glass door at the humans.. (They were so soft to touch!). Chickens I tell you! Big Surprise!!!
