    Hello all, I'm in WA and both new and old to chickens. As a child (and that was longer ago than I can remember) we lived on a farm and always had free range chickens for eggs. Every spring we got 4 doz meaties. That was literally years ago. A few months ago I got 3 laying hens - Sexlink, Java and Wyandotte. I've been averaging 2 eggs per day mostly from the Java and Sexlink. My ladies are fantastic and endlessly entertaining. Their personalities are priceless. I have a big run but let them out to free range often cause although I'm 'in' a city where we live is end of a cul de sac with undeveloped land behind. The ladies love their outings and mud baths and sun bathing too. I've been reading BYC and it is great! Terrific info too.......appreciate it all..........Thanks! Islandlife
