Hello there I came across your site today from a retailer in my area. We live in Wa and are starting our "flock". I currently have two RIR Pullets/Hens, they are 4 months old and inseperable. Henryetta and Red. We have had them since Feb 9 2009. We also have 2 chicks, one an Americana and one a Golden Campine. We have had them for one week now and how silly they are. I am enjoing being a mother to my chicken girls as also with my dachshund, iguana, and fish....We have our own little farm around here A pre-thanks to any advice I receive from all of you.
