    I live south of Portland in farm country on a couple of acres. Married for nearly 25 years to a wonderful woman and we have two daughters and one son (almost out of the house [​IMG] )

    Shortly after moving here 10 years ago we bought 6 hens from the feed store and enjoyed having a few chickens around. So when the last girl died a couple of years ago I wanted to focus on an a breed or two and try raising our own. I really like the Rocks and have 9 month old Partridge (2 Roos, 3 Hens) and Buff (4 Hens - looking for a Roo or two). I want to find Blue and Silver Penciled as well.

    Looks like a great forum and look forward to networking with other chicken enthusiasts and weirdos like me. [​IMG]

    I live in Beaverton, a suburb of Portland! Really its unincorporated Washington County as we can have as many chickens as we want. This is our first foray with them and both hubby and I are adoring every minute!
