    Ms. Dugan - is all black with beautiful green hue to feathers in sun light
    Ms Rainy - is white with a few black feathers here and there
    Ms Speckles - is red/brown with white specks all over.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    We found it by search the web for information.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?

    We have 2 cats: 1- 3yr old Russian Blue who LOVES to watch the chickens but never attacked and 1- 12yr old Black Domestic shorthair who is mostly an indoor cat by her choice.
    We also have a Blue Heeler/Boarder Collie mix who's about 6 months old and learning to be nice to the chickens.
    We live in the Beautiful Pacific Northwest.

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community?


    Found BYC while searching for information about chickens. Know about this site for about 7-8 months now. Finally joined because I frequently search this site and it is referenced alot by other sites. We like the information we read about and the questions members have.
