I am BlueMoon! I used to live by Lincoln City, OR, and had a flock of ten hens, pets. We got ten thinking that we would lose a few, but we built the coop really well and therfore had a few more hens than we had bargained for. It was a joy. When we moved, we had to leave them. :(
We moved to the Salish Sea region, and I waited a long time to get chickens again. (Can we get them yet? No. How about now? No! Can we get chickens soon? NO!!!)
But the time soon came, and I just finally got a flock of five chicks, 2 Buff Orpintons, (Sundance and Oracle) a Barnevelder, (Ozone) a Gold Wyandotte, (Eclipse) and a Gold Brabanter. (Thunderplume)
Right now, they are kind of terrified of me, but they are getting better at not dying whenever I put my hand in the brooder.
I am totally addicted to chickens, and love this site a lot. Allons-y!
