We're talking about getting chickens if we get another house. Our next place is going to be just outside of the city limits where we can have a bigger garden.

That Seattle flight museum was surprisingly good (I generally don't like museums). The kids enjoyed it.

I like my chickens but I need to expand and build a better hen house. The flock has developed some civil unrest these days and are fighting between each other (The rooster isn't keeping the hens in line). Egg productivity is way down.

Might be time to start fresh in the spring with some new birds but I really just need to find time to build a much bigger coop and fenced in enclosure so they have more space to get away from each other. Too many predators around here to let them roam free unfortunately - that would be my preference - they are great at bug control.

If you can tolerate a period of little or no egg production (usually in winter months) a good breed to get is the auracana or americana. Both of these breeds lay colored eggs and are often called easter egg chickens.

Where did you go in WA state where there is a SR-71???

Because, you know, there are no SR-71's in WA state.

I believe it's at the Museum of Flight at the Seattle Airport.

You missed the point of the question. There has never been an SR-71 at the MOF. But there is a cockpit. Point taken.

And unless they moved it, the MOF is located at Boeing Field; which is quite different than Seattle's Seatac, the main commercial hub in the Seattle area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Museum_of_Flight
