    Hello all!

    Today is the start to my adventures in raising backyard chickens! My name is Lyndsey and I live in Washington state. I set up my brooder and have all my supplies and got my little chickies from the farm store around the corner. I plan on raising a mixed flock and have a Barred Rock, RIR, an Easter Egger and a Gold Sex-Link. Checkers, Ruby, Bunny and no name so far! I guess I am on here for moral support, I feel like I have a newborn in the house and am nervous that I wont be a good enough mama :) So this is me, saying "HI" and cant wait to see how everything goes!
