*Waving* Hello! I've been lurking FOREVER but I'm finally jumping in. We've had "The Girls" for a year now...two Buff Orpingtons, one Partridge Plymouth Rock and one Silver-Laced Wyandotte. We're having so much fun with them, have really enjoyed watching their personalities develop and *of course* appreciate the delicious eggs. As often happens, we got sucked in and now we're planning the NEXT additions to the flock I think we're going to hatch eggs this fall (our young birds wintered in the basement and garage last year until they were ready to go out in the spring...this worked well for us). The wish list includes a Swedish Flower Hen, a maran, an Easter Egger (which will probably come from my aunt who raises them in Iowa), and a Blue-laced Red Wyandotte. Anyway, I might as well add in some photos of our coop, which we had ridiculous amounts of fun creating, and a few of our girls when they were wee ones...and one of Astrid now, because she's the only one with a recent portrait Yeah, I know my French is wrong. My mother-in-law is a French teacher and I've been schooled. LA, not LE.
