I'm a new member in the San Francisco Bay Area. My communal house shares three backyard chickens that provide us with eggs and entertainment. We have what I think are a Buff Orpington that recently braved a coyote attack, a Black Laced Gold Wyandotte that follows the Buff everywhere, and a Barred Plymouth Rock that's just as curious and into gymnastics as a cat. I recently tore down the old coop and rebuilt an improved one from the materials, so I'll post those in the near future.
Looking forward to contributing!
