    Hello from Eastern Washington. I've been raising chickens off and on since 1980 and last year started a new flock. I recently found this forum and I can sure appreciate all the info available today. Sure wish a resource like this one was readily available 30 years ago. I learned from lots of trial and error, mostly error. LOL

    Everyone is new at some point and a lot of lessons are learned the hard way so you are not alone in that. If you have questions, always feel free to ask, there are a lot of helpful, knowledgeable members here.

    It's nice to have you join us!
