Hello from WA state! I'm so thrilled to finally be the proud momma of 6 chickens! We are enjoying our girls (well we may have one that is a heshe or a shim as my 8 year old called out) so much! We are learning as we go and still trying to determine exactly what breeds we own. We adopted 6 chicks from a neighbor at about 2 months. We collected our first 3 eggs this week. What a treat. I look forward to using BYC as a means to learn even more about our flock.
