Hi everyone! My name is Lisa, and my family just joined the chicken game this past weekend. We picked up 3 chicks for our son's 3rd birthday, and to be layers for us. My husband and I just finished reading Eating Animals and decided to do something about the nasty and cruel factory farm situation. So we bought a coop, a few books, and jumped right in! We have three different breeds: 1 RIR (Ginger), 1 Dominique (Henrietta), and 1 Delaware (Toby). They are currently in a brooder in our garage until they're sturdy enough for the Seattle Spring. They are growing like weeds and so much fun already! I ran across this group when looking up information on how to get started, and finally joined. Looking forward to getting to know you!
