Hi everybody, I am new to raising chickens. We just moved to a small Homestead of 5 acres. We are excited to start adding animals and our first choice was chickens.

We want them for eggs and for meat. For this reason I ordered 15 chicks of a mixed heavy breed. I am excited for them to come. We live right beside Mount Ranier and Mount Saint Helens in Washington. So if these volcanoes ever blow you might be able to come over some for some baked chicken. Actually I'm not sure how lava cooks chicken. I hope I never find out.

I think that is how people make "blackened" chicken but, I would think there wasn't any chicken. When I was a kid I read about the last days of Pompeii, ever since I have had a deep fear of volcanoes. People keep telling me the mid-west doesn't have any. But, I'm sure they can pop up over night

Welcome to BYC, yes keep an eye out for eruptions. My son lives in WA and he and a few friends climbed part way up Mt.Ranier, he said mainly it was slippery (I don't like ice either) - they took some spectacular photos.

Welcome to BYC, Megan. Glad you decided to join our flock. I've been all over Washington including the Mt. Ranier and Mt. St. Helens area and it is a beautiful state. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your chicks.

Thanks everyone. I'm so excited. I'm getting a circular saw in the mail this week so I can build a chicken coop in my barn stall. Of course they won't go in there for a while. It's so fun to plan and design things like this
