    My name is Amy Thomson. I live in Seattle, and have three chickens in a home built coop. There's Mary, an Ameraucana, Suki, a Cuckoo Marans, and Lacey, a Silver Laced Wyandotte, all close to 2 years old. They're pretty spoiled birds. Current plans are to add two more birds to the flock, an Australorp, and an Ameraucana. I actually got my degree in General Agriculture, and once fathered a chicken! (They took animal husbandry pretty seriously at the University of Idaho!)

    [​IMG] Loved your interesting introduction especially the part about "fathering" a chicken.
