    Wow! I wish I knew about this forum many years ago when I was first starting out with chickens. But I found BYC, finally!!!

    So, I live in good ol' unincorporated Snohomish County WA where I've been stumbling through chicken ownership for a good decade or so, and now I am stumbling through my next phase of poultry - turkeys and ducks!

    Let's see -more about me....
    I'm a mom of 2 small boys, have lots of animals including a dozen chickens - all various breeds and ages. A couple of turkeys and ducks were this springs addition, an old goat, horse, dogs and lots of salt water fish and coral (I count them as animals too) [​IMG]
    For work I am a landscape designer & horticulturalist, certified arborist, and I own a landscape design/build company. I am currently taking a part time hiatus from designing gardens and writing a book about gardening with chickens! So naturally I am curious to know anyone here who gardens [​IMG]

    I'm looking forward to diving into the boards and getting to know ya'll!

    [​IMG] from so. California!! DH and I love gardening! With chickens though? They eat all of our veggies! [​IMG] However, we use the chickens to eat the weeds/seedlings between seasons and let they dig up the dirt and eat bugs when nothing is planted. They love it!

    [​IMG] from N. Calif, so glad you joined! (I wish someone like you lived next door so I could copy your landscaping...[​IMG]) I love gardening and chickens, (and horses, ducks, dogs, cats, goats, rabbits) but its a challenge gardening when they break in to the llandscaping [​IMG] Looking forward to PICs and what a great idea for a book, wish it was out now...[​IMG]
