We are living in Spokane, WA and are getting set up and ready to get some new chickens here some time in April or May (we're only allowed 3). I am trying to do my due diligence before I get them, so I've been reading a lot through the site and just gathering information (also from my brother, who happened to tell me about this site - Thanks big bro!). Wondering if anyone has any specific Eastern WA suggestions/cautions/etc? I have an almost 5 yr old son who will be helping me, so we're thinking the Orpingtons are the best choice. Anywho, it's good to have so many threads to read and learn from!!
