[FONT=comic sans ms,sand]Hey from Everett Washington[/FONT]
We have one Delaware, two Black Australorp, two Rhode Islands, and two Buff Orpingtons. They were purchased in May of 2009. One of the Delawares turned out to be a little dude, so when he started to crow he went north to Arlington. We can't have roosters in the city. Our first egg was in September (Delaware), and now Jan 2010, we get six eggs most days. We got this group because they are brown egg layers, good winter layers (which I was suprized to see this many eggs this winter.) and big birds.
We have an Americana type girl (Big Sallie) thats about six years old, she has quit laying but she's a part of the family.
Slate, Reno, and Diego are the felines of the group.
