For practicing crazyhouse puzzles and playing zh960, I recommend the chessvariants site created by ProgramFox, which has now incorporated puzzle tags (although for game play pychess is even nicer with zh960, s-chess, capahouse and much more). But you can also practice crazyhouse puzzles on lichess directly in the following specially created studies:
