Having two pet chickens as a child (Beaker and Captain Midnight), I thought I was the only one that saw chickens for what they could be -- a great companion. Boy, was I wrong! Now have 6 darling chicks I got this last weekend and am in process of setting up the hen house and pen. The flock consists of: - 2 Ameraucanas - a Barred Rock - a Black Sex Link - a Silver-laced Wyandotte - a Rhode Island Red Am looking for two Buff Orpingtons to round out the group. (If anyone has a line on any available in Western Washington, please let me know.) I am looking forward to learning more on keeping the girls happy and health; especially ideas on enrichment activities.
