Hello!

I grew up on a farm with chickens, but we sold the farm when I was 9, so I don't remember much. At the present time we haven't bought any chickens. We bought a small farm in extreme Northeast WA state, and need to convert an old shed into a roost. My greatest fear is the low temps here in the winter.
I found BackYardChickens.com while surfing the net and I'm really impressed by the well organized site.
I'm semi retired, and work summers for the National Park Service. My wife works and goes to college, and I want to teach our 16 year old son how to be self sufficient as well as prepareing for full retirement and lower pay!!
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hello and Welcome from Eastern Wa. You shouldn't worry to much about the cold you need to make sure there are no drafts it's the icy wind that is dangerous to them. Try to pic cold hearty breeds like orpingtons, bard rocks, sex links and many more breeds. Just get on the forum and start asking questions, you will find all answers you need. Enjoy BYC!
