Hey all I'm Liz, though you can call me kittens I'm new to chickens and already completely enamored with my little flock! I got my chicks from the local feed store on February 24th, two Americaunas (biggest-Bertha, smallest-Tiny), 1 Buff Wyandotte (Buffy), 1 Silver-laced Wyandotte (Lacey), and 1 Barred Rock (Roxy). They are 13 weeks now, and today I went and picked up a 10 week old Red Sexlink that I noticed on craigslist and fell in love with when I saw her, I've decided to call her Ruby to keep with my theme! Right now they're getting acclimated and I thought it was about time I joined and introduced myself because I've been lurking so long! I am a recent grad from Washington State University and work at a local nursery that also has a bunch of assorted chickens, two peacocks, three peahens, and occasionally pheasants. At work I also deal a lot with goldfish and koi, while at home I also have two cats (10 months old), and my boyfriend has a middle-aged dog that we think is a beagle/German shepherd mix (cutie!). I will add some photos of my girls once I download them from my phone, I'm amazed at how much they are growing and I hope everyone will love them as much as I do!
