    Hi!
    I'm hoping to find more Local Seattle city chicken keepers/Urban Farmers!
    Would love to hear from all you folks who keep chickens/gardens/goats/etc inside the Seattle City Limits!

    :thumbsup

    Well, not sure if I'd classify myself as an urban farmer, but I do live in Seattle and I have 3 ducks! I got them when they were 2 days old, and now they are 9 months old. They each have been laying an egg a day for the past 4 months.
    I plan to start off with a "pottager" type garden this spring, as I have never grown vegies before. Maybe more after that!

    Hello.

    I'm in North Beach. We have 7 chickens. We got them at 1 day old and it's been a year. My husband built an amazing coop that also functions as a playhouse for my two sons. It's two stories...playhouse on top. I'll get around to posting those pics eventually.

    There have to be more of us, don't you think?
