I've come to BackYard Chickens a few times, while I research what kinds of chickens we want to raise in the future. I figured it was time for an account...

Am in Washington State, on the "east side" in the Pugent sound region.

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. A lot of us were lurkers before joining. I've been to the Puget Sound area on several occasions and it is a beautiful area. I'm especially fond of the Olympic Peninsula and always thought the Port Angeles/Sequim area would be a nice area in which to retire. What characteristics are you looking for in a chicken? There are some good breed reference charts ar http://albc-usa.etapwss.com/images/uploads/docs/pickachicken.pdf, http://www.mypetchicken.com/chicken-breeds/breed-list.aspx, and http://www.sagehenfarmlodi.com/chooks/chooks.html, and Murray McMurray has an excellent "chick selector" tool at https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chick_selector.html to help you determine which breeds are best for you. Just be sure and click on "show more characteristics." Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

For chickens, mostly planning on egg layers, fed a special diet. So looking at high production, but also want to get some more unique colored eggs. Love the blue and olive colors. Brown are fine too. White is okay, but so common..
