    I'm Dave from Lake Stevens WA. First time chicken raiser, got the bug when my parents neighbor moved and gave my Brother their two hens. Built a coop and run, have had my 3 hens (I think, breed and sex post forthcoming) for 1 month now and it seems to be going well. Only have one laying but has been laying an egg a day for the last 3 weeks.
