    I know not many people will read this but I figured I might as well say a bit about myself.

    My name is Clarissa and I live in Oregon, about 20 miles NW of Portland. I've been here for 6 years. We rent an old 40's farm house from a blueberry farmer and are on 120+ acres. I have 2 girls, 7 and 2. Some of my hobbies include photography, gardening, BEER (microbrews) and crochet/knit... in the future I hope to expand that list to include pottery and spinning.

    We bought 12 Buff Orpington's & 5 Sexlinks on March 5th. Two weeks later we received 11 CornishX for free. I had never been around a live chicken for more than a few minutes prior to March 5th so please excuse my ignorance.

    May 20th I pick up 13 Red Cornish chicks and will do so every 8 weeks or so experimenting with many different breeds. In July I'm considering Dark Cornish and maybe switching to Freedom Rangers by September. I plan to never buy commercially produced chicken again.

    I don't have many pix of me since I'm usually behind the camera...
