Hi there, everyone! I'm excited to be a member of BYC! We live in Port Angeles, WA up in a rural spot and are owned by 7 hens - 1 Barred Rock, 2 Delawares, 2 New Hampshire Reds and 2 Welsummers (we will be adding 4 Ameraucanas to the flock soon) - and 3 small dogs. My hubby built a 7' x 4' coop and a 28' x 12' fully enclosed run for our girls. The dogs have a big, fully fenced in backyard to roam in. The dogs do stay in the backyard when we let the girls free range. We have only lived in our home for 1 1/2 years (moved here 2 years ago), but we love it up here. I'm looking forward to learning new ideas for raising our hens and sharing some of their antics with all of you.
