    I live in the beautiful Upper Skagit Valley of Washington State & I'm very happy to have found this site/forum! I can't believe how many chicken lovers are out there & so many from Washington State! YAY!! [​IMG]

    Right now I don't have any chickens but in the spring I plan to get a few Marans or Welsummers or a couple of both breeds. In the past I've raised many chickens including Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons & Jersey Giants. I'm very excited about getting some new hens! I've really missed having farm fresh eggs from my own chickens.

    I live alone with one cat (Poppy), one mini dachshund (Ryker) and one Min Pin (Tyson). My son is grown & engaged to be married in February. They already have one beautiful daughter (5 months old now) & I can't wait until she's old enough to take out & collect eggs with me. [​IMG]

    My other hobbies are organic gardening, genealogy & computer gaming. For exercise I do a little weight lifting since it's good for your bones, heart, muscles, attitude.

    A friend is going to build me a chicken tractor in the late winter/early spring & when it's done I'll be looking for some hens to go into it. I can't wait to collect some of those beautiful chocolate eggs! Glad I found this forum because it'll give me plenty of reading material while I wait for spring. [​IMG]
