We are new to both BYC, and chickens. Having been thinking about them forever, thought we (me and my chicken crazy eldest daughter) could convince the hubby/dad to hop aboard the chicken train by spring. Stopped by Bay Hay & Feed on Bainbridge on Sunday, and they (to everyone's surprise, even theirs, had some new chicks, born 8/10! We arrived back in Seattle with 2 Barred Rocks (who are a little feisty!), 2 Amerucaunas (one of whom is always leading the others into box pecking), and 2 Rhode Island Reds (who love to snuggle). Love having a fluffy box of life in the kitchen! The dogs are fascinated and so far, well behaved-a minor miracle considering that we are talking about a lab and a springer!
