    Hello to all!

    I am a new member. Joined BYC earlier this month. I have been lurking for a couple of weeks. My name is Kathy Z. I live in Oregon.
    I have loved chickens all my life! In High School, I was a member of the FFA and on the Poultry Judging Team. I learned a lot about chickens!
    Now, many years later my Daughter-In-Law has started raising backyard chickens! They have 5 lovely girls. My son built an amazing coop from recycled materials. I believe the girls are Ameauricanas ?? They give us lovely light blue eggs 3-5 per day! My grandsons ( 4 & 7) go out every morning to visit the girls and collect eggs. I get to visit them on the weekends. I am basically homebound/disabled due to health issues. When ever I get to go see the grandkids & the girls it really lifts my spirits[​IMG]

    The city in which we live allows up to 5 chickens, no roosters. Unfortunately our landlord won't allow us to have chickens. So I have a great collection of antique chickens, and other chicken collectibles. I have a hutch in 1 corner of my kitchen which is full of lot's of girls, and of course a large wooden rooster! We call it my chicken coop [​IMG]
    I am so happy to have found this group. I look forward to learning all about raising backyard chickens and meeting other chicken lovers!

    Hope this post isn't too long, in the future I will share some photos of the girls.

    Happy Peeping, Kathy Z (aka krazychick)

    Welcome to Backyard chickens, so glad you joined the flock [​IMG] Do your grand children live close to you? Maybe they could drop in for a visit between weekends.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    If you're unsure on the breed of your birds, you can post pictures of them here, and we'll try to determine what they are! You can also post in the What Breed or Gender section for some answers:https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Good luck with your flock!

    I would definitely post photos of your unknown chickens in the What Breed or Gender is This? section of the forums. Knowledgeable chicken-identifiers there should be able to help.

    Good luck with your birds!

    Thank you drumstick diva. Yes my grandchildren live near us about 15 min. away. They may be coming over this afternoon to bring us some eggs[​IMG]
    Unfortunately I can't drive and their Mother also doesn't drive. My son works long hours in Heating & AC, so weekends are the best.

    For now crazychick [​IMG]
