    Hi fellow chickeneers! I'm a former lurker and joining now as I've kept a backyard flock in Vancouver Canada for about 6 years now but I'm moving East to somewhere near Washington DC and I want to do some research about chicken-friendly and goat friendly counties in the area! Looking forward to reading and learning more and meeting everybody.

    Thanks!! Right now I have two Maran crosses, 2 Ameraucanas and one Dominique. In the past I've kept silkies, Buff Orpingtons, and hatched polish, Lavender and Blue Orpingtons...oh gosh, also RIR and Australorp and Black Copper Maran...I'll admit it I have an egg colour fetish!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining. :eek:) You have a nice mix of breeds. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may want to post on state threads around the DC area to find ones that are chicken friendly. Maybe you can get the president to proclaim chickens in every yard. [​IMG]
