BYC was recommended to me by a friend. I have eleven beautiful chickens...4 polish, 1 sultan, 1 frizzle, 4 Araucana, and 1 Seabright. I have 1 beehive, 12 Koi fish, 2 wonderful dogs and 1 lovely husband who bought me my first chicken book. I read a lot. I am an avid gardener. I love to work out, and I live in the northwest. I am looking forward to hearing others experiences with chickens.
