Hello from foggy Seattle! Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I've come to BYC quite a bit for research, but figured I'd get the most out of joining the community and participating I don't currently have chickens, but the plan is to start a small flock of [probably] Wyandottes this spring. I had a few Rhode Island Reds as a kid and have more recently raised Cayuga and Indian Runner ducks. I love ducks, but am ready for a less water-loving (and muddy) flock of birds! I'm particularly interested in learning about the particular challenges of raising chickens and managing a healthy coop in a rainy, wet environment. I have not yet finalized the coop plans, but I'm starting to form some ideas based on the great information here on BYC. I enjoy traveling, fishing, and gardening, with a particular interest in backyard farming. I'm looking forward to learning and sharing with all of you.
