    Hi all,
    I'm new to chickens all over again, haven't had any for about 15 years. We have 4 Isa Browns and 3 Aracaunas, (sp?) one of which is a young rooster and they are beautiful boys!
    I'e been married to my hubby Ron for 39 years and we have 3 grown kids, 33, 30 and 25.
    We decided to get back into having a few chickens since we have both recently retired (yeah!)
    We live on 5 acres and our hobbies are, of course our feathered friends, a huge garden that feeds us as well as the kids and inlaws and camping in our trailer usually to go salmon fishing.
    I found BYC searching for different breeds as we are planning on getting another 6 hens.
    The girls are our pals and they free-run once they have laid and come to the house to visit and are always waiting for treats from the garden.

    Welcome to BYC, Nanoose Deb! Glad you decided to join our flock. We have visited Vancouver Island several times as it is such a beautiful place. Isa Browns are egg laying machines, and Araucanas (actually ours are Easter Eggers, not true Araucanas which are tailless and lay only blue eggs) are my granddaughter's favorite chickens. She loves the different colored eggs they lay. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Tell your daughter I said, "Good luck with her flock."
