My family and I live in Chehalis, WA. I'm originally from Montana and hubby is Native Washingtoninan. He is active duty military and is stationed up at JBLM. We have 4 kids (boy, girl, boy, girl), three dogs (Siberian husky, Italian Greyhound, and Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua cross), a cat, 2 White Chinese Goslings named Xiexie and Ni Hao, 3 Ameracauna chicks, 2 Barred Rock chicks, 2 Rhode Island Red chicks, 2 Black Sexlink chicks and 6 Black Broiler chicks. All of the poultry is currently being brooded in my living room. I always had chickens as a child, and some of my earliest memories are helping my Mother tend to them and bringing in lots of eggs from the hen house after school each day. We had chickens when stationed in Oklahoma, but had to re-home them after suddenly being put on orders. We should have at least 2 years here, probably more. I got tired of paying $4 a dozen for nice eggs and miss being able to buy the lovely free range birds that were available to us at a good price in Europe, so the natural step now that we own a home again is to build a coop and put some birds in it! I'm on the lookout for Salmon Faverolle hatching eggs, chicks or a nice young pair who will have a little family. Been lurking here for years..... finally decided to create an account.
