    Hello!

    After reading endlessly on the forums here, I finally jumped in and brought home 6 chicks from our local feed store yesterday, and could not be more thrilled!

    We have:
    1 - Welsummer
    1 - Dominique
    1 - Partridge Rock
    1 - Rhode Island Red
    1 - Black Australorp
    1 - Buff Orphington

    I'm also a mom to twin 2 year old boys, stepmom to a 5 year old son and 10 year old daughter, have a great husband, a cat, and a full time job. We're based in Arcata, up in good old Humboldt County in gorgeous Northern California.

    Thanks so much to everyone for all of the sharing and great information on these pages!

    Welcome to the forum! Glad you joined us. I lived in Arcata for 7 years....did high school there. [​IMG] That's a nice assortment of chicken breeds. I'm sure you'll love them. Just remember to build your coop a bit larger than you think you need, because you WILL want more in the future.[​IMG]
