    Hello, my name is Hailey and I'm looking to connect with other chicken enthusiast like myself. I have loved chickens since I was a little kid but was never allowed to own them; once I became an adult that all changed and I now have ten of them. I have owned chickens for about four years now. I live in Washington just outside of Seattle and I really want to start building a community of other chicken lovers in my area to connect with. All of my friends and family think I'm crazy for owning chickens as pets, but I know I can't be the only one.

    Boy, did you come to the right place. BYC has over 200,000 members around the globe, sometime it seems like they all live in Washington. Your state has a very, very active thread,- lots of very nice people. It moves very fast, so just jump in and enjoy the ride.
