    Hi All,

    I'm new here and new to raising fowl so I wanted to come over here and introduce myself.

    I'm from Monroe, WA (near Seattle) and I live on 5 acres with a large variety of animals. I ordered quite the assortment of fowl this year and this is the current list:

    Chickens
    10 Silver Laced Polish
    2 White Crested Blue Polish
    3 White Crested Black Polish
    5 Silver Laced Wyandottes
    3 French Black Marans
    2 Silver Seabrights
    3 Americaunas

    Guineas
    1 Royal Purple (hopefully getting some friends for her soon)

    Ducks
    1 Khaki Campbell
    9 Cayugas
    3 Blue Swedish

    I have already learned so much from this forum and am looking forward to learning much more!
