    Hi everyone,
    I'm a new member here, and reading as much as I can about Chickens. My twelve year old son and I got our first set of chickens this April, from a woman in Bellingham. She gave them all to me for free! She lives in the city limits, and gets people dropping off chickens frequently. She gave us for free, 3 sebrights, 3 rosecombs, a polish crested ( we named Einstein), and a rhode island red bantam named Weasel! All the chickens were about 4 months old. She has been a blessing to us, and very helpful with information about raising chickens. She also told me about this web site, and I finally took the time to join!

    We are very happy to be here![​IMG]

    Quote:wow you have quite the selection! I do love my silkies, and looking for a lavender hen to add to my flock.
    I know, the fancys are just for looking, so I am also looking into a breed of meat chicken that won't harm my fancy's [​IMG]
    Maybe I will stay with the Rhode Island reds, for both meat and eggs. They are very docile too.

    Welcome! What a beautiful variety of chickens you have! Enjoy them! My son is 17 and just loves the chickens. It's amazing how many people who have never even seen a live chicken up close....I really enjoy showing them and watching how amazed visitors get when they actually touch a live chicken......So much fun!

    Maybe your son would enjoy 4-H! That's a great program for kids......gives them something to do and friends with something in common.....
