    Hi Everyone,
    I'm from the Portland, Oregon area and, until this morning, had 12 chickens. (One was put down today due to Marek's). The remaining 11 are RIR, Barred Rock, Cuckoo Marans, Red Sex Link and Black Sex Link.
    I had laying hens for about 15 years and then took a 10 year break, now back at it again. There is much new information and many more breeds available. Thanks for letting me join you.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry about the one you had to put down. [​IMG] Never an easy thing to do. Mareks is contagious, so I hope the rest of your flock is ok.

    So glad you could join and welcome to our flock!
