    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Married 40 years, retired RN, husband electrical engineer, moved to rural area near Mt. Rainier, WA about 5 years ago to care for my aging parents who live with us. Chickens are good therapy. My mom was raised on farm and always had chickens. She seems to enjoy having them. We also have a dog but no other pets. Live in area with lots of predators, eagles, hawks, coyote, bobcat, cougar, bear, etc. so we have large run with mesh over top for chickens when outside coop.
