Hi, I'm "Littledog" and I live in Western Washington state (the rainy part where summer lasts a couple days) on 2 acres in a small town. My household consists of 2 of us in our 50's, one energetic border collie, one horse who lives at a stable 15 minutes away, and my 3 pullets. I joined this forum because it came highly recommended by some of the members of my favorite horse forum. I'm new to having my own chickens here at home, but I've been a member of our town's chicken co-op for the past two years. Participating in the co-op has taught me the basics of caring for chickens, but now that I've had my own here at home for a month, I want to learn more in depth. This forum sounds like it will be a great resource!
