I'm from Vancouver Washington, and pretty new to owning chickens. I don't have a very big yard so I only have a small group of 6 chickens. My Ameraucana, Buff Orpington and Silver laced Wyandotte just started laying within the last couple weeks, so exciting! I never knew chickens could be so fun to have. I love them to death, they are so fun, so much personality in each one. My kids love them and the chickens love them too. I haven't had too many concerns, except just today, my Ameracana laid her second egg, with it was a really small amount of blood on the egg. Is this normal? An hour after she laid I saw her squat and pee a lot, and it wasn't accompanied by poop. Is there something wrong? Her behavior is normal and she's as active as ever. Excited to go through all this information on BYC, love it, its very helpful. Love to see all the many different and beautiful chickens on here as well!
