Hi there, glad to be here! I am about to set off into the world of urban chicken ownership , and have just ordered my first set of hatching eggs. (Still have to build the coop, but I figure that having incubating eggs will be a good motivation!) Let's see, I live in Seattle, have wanted chickens for years, and decided about six months ago that I absolutely had to get Barnevelders. I've been reading the various threads on here about the breed, and they've been a great source of information.
