Nice to meet ya! I live in Kirkland, WA and have only been chickening for about a year. LOVE IT! I've got 15 ladies, no boys and Boomer, the dog. I have found this forum a number of times when I've googled questions I have and so finally I got off my tail feathers and signed up. Very happy to have some other crazy chicken people to talk to. The rest of the world just doesn't understand us, do they? My "farm" has a facebook page....feel free to "like" it if you will. Merry Christmas or Merry Chickmas!! Ha! JenBird OOPS! The forum won't let me add a link. Until I'm cleared as not a spammer, you can search Facebook for Cluckin' "A" Farm.
