    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.

    Drop in on the Washingtonian thread (see "Where am I, Where are you") a very, very lively thread moves along at breakneck speed - they have chicken lovers with all sorts of breeds, very nice, helpful people. You can't go wrong there. Tell then I sent ya. [​IMG]
