I am new to Washington and new to chicken ownership. I had great plans to start with a few older pullets this summer but was unable to resist 4 bantam chicks, so we are now chicken owners! We have 2 ameraucanas and 2 partridge rocks and if we are lucky, only one roo in the group. We will be adding to the flock soon, so I hope to connect with other islanders to talk chicken. We are a family of 2 adult and 2 little boy humans, 2 big mutt dogs, 5 cats indoor, outdoor and in between, 3 old retirement llamas and now chickens. Thats the headcount at the moment, but knowing me it can change in an instant!
