Hello! I seem to have the chicken bug! We don't have any yet, but we have been researching. We plan to just have a few hens, for laying and entertainment. I think this will be a great experience for my family. We have two kids ages 3 1/2 and 1 1/2. So far, our plans are to build a chicken tractor to house the hens. Looking forward to learning more! I am going to guess we will be ready to get our hens in a few weeks. If anyone has hens in Snohomish county let us know!
