Hi guys! My name is Katrina, I'm in Oregon. We are about to get our first chicks this weekend. I have been thinking about getting into chickens for 2 years now, just kept getting scared off thinking they would be too much work or too hard to keep alive. I have been doing research, and now have 3 friends with chickens...who make it look like no big deal We are just starting off with a mixed flock of 6. I have decided to get one each of... Ameraucana (supposedly the real deal and not an EE...I don't care either way) Barred Plymouth Rock Silver Laced Wyandotte Salmon Faverolle Buff Brahma and a Barnevelder. I am super excited to learn more here. Thanks!
