this is my first foray into chickens... in april i got 4 day olds, in june i got 2 more. in july i realized one of the girls was a guy (roosters are illegal in city limits)so i moved him to a farm in snohomish. then i got two more. the newest girls were a couple months old when i got them. i tried to get some variety, so i got a orpington, a rock, a welsummer, americauna, cochin and 2 wyandotes (one silver, one blue). so far so good, just waiting for some eggs!
