I am living in Enumclaw WA. I have lived on and off in this house for 16 years now. We sent 3 of thoses years in the Vancouver WA area. That's when I got into chickens I had about 80 chicks and 25 layers in the spring of 2000, and then we had to move across state to a development house. We didn't we could have chickens here, but since the neighbors have gotten chickens. So now I don't care and I want a few Marans, and as soon as DH builds me a new coop. I'm getting them. I don't know where I going to get them but I will. I am Christina I have or live with; 1 darling traveling husband, 2 very nice people kids who are out of the house and self supporting!, An 11 year old Komondor, 1 mama Yorkie, 1 daddy Yorkie, 4 pups born Jan 6th 09, 4 cats 2 in and 2 out by their choice, 1 eel, 1polyptreus, 2 evil Red Devil Cichlids and children, 12 Glass cats, 6 Black Neons, 1 African Butterfly, one very overweight Plecotomus, and some really scary wild hummingbirds.
