Hi everyone! So glad to be here. I don't have chickens yet but am currently building my coop and hope to have chickens in about a month. I'm so excited!! I'm a longtime fan of chickens, many of my good friends raise chickens, and I've consulted this website many, many times on their advice.
I am an amateur historian and I love animals. My dream is to transform my property into a hobby farm that specializes in heritage and threatened breeds of chicken, sheep, rabbits, and horses. I have and breed Bergamascos, which is a rare breed of Italian sheepdog that dates back to Ancient Rome. There are only about 6,000 of them in the world.
I live in Ventura County (Southern California) and can't wait to meet new chicken folks, both close to home and far away!
Thanks for letting me join!
