    Unincorporated King County -- Washington State

    that counts if you have more than 1 acre of land. I only have about 1/4 acre so it doesn't apply in this case. The way it was interpreted is that I could have 3 small animals and they coudl be chickens. However, the area was set to incorporate and the city allows up to 6 chickens in addition...

    I have a blue sumatra that is supposedly about 3 years old, but has no spurs at all. He's got some little spur buds but nothing like a real spur. Is he just a bad specimin or is he maybe a lot younger than I was told? Any ideas? I can try to get some pictures later, I'm not at home now.

    I have large fowl, but not perfect stock. I guess you mostly have bantams though so I'll probably have to find bigger birds elsewhere. I don't need them to get bigger, but I don't really want to have bantams at this point. Maybe when I get out of the city and don't have a stupid limit on the...

    IDK, I'd try craigslist and the auction sites here, etc. I wish I was closer or planning a road trip to cali, I'd love to breed him. I saw a black sumatra for $50 (mature good stock) and I recently sold 2 juvenile boys for $25 each and probably could have gotten more but I had to thin my flock...

    if it was a boy, I bet he'll be worth a lot of money. He's gonna make a good stud.
