    After a 12 year drought of not having any chickens, I am now 'with chickens"

    Finished my tractor this afternoon.
    Went to the chicken auction tonight.
    Made out like a thief.
    I got two indescriminant bantam pullets for 90 cents each.
    I got a pair of bantam Aracaunas for 7 dollars each. ( Beautiful)
    I also got a pair of Blues for 2 dollars each. Very pretty blues.

    I got to use my new transport cage I built, and got a bunch of compliments on it.

    Pictures of everything tommorow.

    Hey, new here! Looks like a gold mine of information, but I'm lazy, so I'll just ask - I'm thinking of getting chickens - again. Had 4 Rhode Island Reds last time - lovely girls. But now considering banties, and getting a rooster. I think they do less serious soil re-arranging, and the crowing may be a minor, rather than major, irritation to the neighbors.

    Does anyone have any advice on finding 4-6 banty pullets in the Tacoma-Seattle-Everett metro area of Western Washington State? Any book recommendations on bantys in particular?

    I would have provided a picture of my Araucana Bantam roo.....................
    But I opened the door to put some feed in and he flew the coop.
