Hello from WA!! I am now the proud mommy of 4 Amerucauna's . We decided not to go for a rooster, but that may change in time. My husband and I are new to this whole chicken lifestyle, though I was an AG major in college. We are almost ready to introduce our new "kids" to their coop and my husband is finishing up their grand mansion in the backyard. Looking forward to all the firsts.. and watching how fast they grow !! I can watch these little ones for lengths of time, pet them and just crack up at their curiosity. This.. Im going to enjoy.
