Hello, Fellow Portlanders! We got our chicks at Naomi's- love that store, everyone is so helpful and friendly. Since we got heritage breeds, (and on the advice of a friend) we got 4 chicks instead of 3 as "rooster insurance", and man, am I glad we did. Our Buff Orpington is definitely a roo! (And at 10.5 weeks, hasn't crowed yet, but I am sure that's not too far away!) AmyWho, thanks for posting the link- I look forward to checking it out! Saerax, Do your chicks like Pink Floyd? They look like they're at a laser show! (Yuk, yuk, sorry- I loved that pic, just made me cluckle!) They are super cute! aggiemae, a "meet and greet" sounds like great fun- hurray for fellow chicken nerds! And Hurray for summer in Oregon- it's been a lovely one so far. Happy Chickening!
