Glad to be back on the BYC again as chickenmeadow, raising standard chickens now for larger eggs. Used to be save the favs on the BYC in 2009-2010, had bantam Blue Salmon Faverolles chickens then (I miss those sweeties).

We wanted a fun & docile flock combo of 1 1/2 dozen that would be happy to lay eggs year-round; chose Ameraucanas that lay well here even in the hot months & Black Australorps that lay well here even in the cold months. Have just added a few Speckled Sussex this year & plan for adding Swedish Flower Hens next year.

We live in a forested area of Oregon with a meadow that the chickens live in; they are protected by a closed run with hot wire & a sturdy coop. Plan to add more fencing to safely semi-free range if possible here with all of the beautiful sky & land predators who frequent.

A special thanks to all you BYC'ers for your story & info sharing & support. Best wishes
