Greetings From Beautiful Downtown Burbank

Ok, only those of you old enough to have watched the original Tonight Show would understand that greeting. 

 

Hi!  I'm a new chicken keeper here in Southern California. I wasn't sure if I was able to have chickens outside of our adjacent "Equestrian District" since they poopooed our piggy "Cobra" and we had to get rid of him. :( Turns out, in California, pigs (even potbellied pets) are classified as food and considered agriculture, not livestock so traveling with him was a nightmare due to "customs" at the state line.  And living Equestrian District adjacent (kinda like Beverly Hills adjacent but smellier) he was not allowed. But luckily you are allowed to have up to 25 "fowl" so in addition to the 17 birds I already have in an outdoor aviary, 4 more little chicks made the cut. Whew!

 

Yesterday I bought two Barred Rock and two Ameracauna chicks.  They are adorable. Looking forward to our upcoming "Restoration Hardware" color palette of dusky blue and brown eggs. Gonna get them a groovy coop setup in a week or two. I'll have it all decked out with Shabby Chic couches and Damask window treatments, cause, ya know, this is LA.

 

They have their own little BrooderCam :) https://home.nest.com/camera/ba778539122c4f0cbd2709f33ed356e5

 

Bye for now -

Hi Jennifer, it's nice to have you here!

 

How nice you can have so many chickens...a lot of people seem to be limited to just 6 or so. Your coop plans sound like fun, hope you'll share some pictures!

Hi Jennifer, nice to meet you.  I have been enjoying your brooder cam.   I thought it was" Laugh-in" that used that line :hu

Thanks! Glad you are enjoying the little cuties. Yeah Johnny Carson coined that line and opened every show with it. The show taped here forever until Jay Leno left then it moved away. We were sorry to see it go. :_(
