    Hi all....new to this site but have been reading threads lately. I have wanted chickens for so long and now have 6 month olds I raised from babies. I have a BO, 2 EE, and a black australorp. They are my babies and I love them! They make me so happy and laugh a lot. I live in the PNW, am an RN in hospice and I love to grow my own food. I'm a wanna-be farmer I guess, lots of farmers in my family, in the blood I guess. I also love to explore the woods, read, cook and knit. Thanks for all your great words of wisdom!
