    Greetings. I got my first chicks on my birthday back in January on the 7th. I moved to a 5 acres horse property in the woods of Fall City, Washington back in October of last year, 2016. This is a dream come true for me and my family. The property had a hen house, fenced run, and a fenced in area for the chickens to explore.

    Our flock of Ladies:
    One Welsummer
    Two Black Sex Links
    Two Barred Plymouth Rock
    Two Buff Orpington

    The ladies started laying eggs a few months ago and we are loving having these delicious eggs and sharing them with friends and family.

    On the property we also have, 3 horses, 2 dogs, 4 house cats, a slew of barn cats rescued and re homed to the property from feral communities in eastern Washington, 2 Holland Lop bunnies, and sweet guinea pig, zebra finches.. I think that's all .. for now.

    On Tuesday we said goodbye to our rooster :-(... We had received him from a neighbor. He was half silkie and half not sure. His father was full Silkie. This sweet guy was born a month before our hens and we took him on as protector of the ladies.

    Sadly, he became lame a few weeks ago and later paralyzed. We are pretty sure he was hit with Marek's.. We had him put down this past Tuesday and we are very sad about losing this beautiful boy. I know some roosters are difficult.. but this boy was a sweet sweet guy. During his illness, in the days before he died, he loved to cuddle, be stroked, massaged.. he was very docile.. and tender. The neighbors named him Potato and he was certainly a Sweet Potato!
