    Hi All - A big thank you to all you previous posters. The information I've gotten from this site has been amazing so far, and I'm sure will continue to be helpful as our adventure unfolds.

    We are in Battle Ground, WA, near Vancouver and across the Columbia River from Portland, OR. Had some chickens as a child, then again 30 years ago when my own kids were small. We now have the opportunity to have them again, and best of all to share the experience with 3 granddaughters, ages 6, 4 and 2.

    We currently have 7 pullet (fingers crossed) chicks, approx. 6 weeks old. 2 Welsummers, and one each Delaware, Cuckoo Marans, Australorp, Americauna, and Buff-Laced Polish. We've been constructing the new coop in components in the shop due to our extremely wet spring weather. Supposed to be nice this week, and we should be able to get the bits moved out to the site and assembled. Some pictures on my BYC page, more to follow.
