Introduction from Linda in Los Gatos, California (SF Bay Area)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello!

My name is Linda - we live in Los Gatos and just started a new flock. They're about 8 weeks old and have been outside for about 2 weeks. We transferred them from brooder to a makeshift coop in our dog run...and they've been in the actual coop for maybe 3 nights now.

We have a combination of Ameraucanas and Silver Wyandottes. One of the Wyandottes seems to be a rooster, not sure just yet, but we've found a farm to rehome him to down in San Martin, just in case. We're also considering the crow collar as an option.

Last time I had a flock 2007-2009 I wasn't a part of the chicken community - when I relocated to NYC I had to rehome my flock to sweet family in Santa Cruz. So, while I'm not entirely new to chickenry, I am definitely not an expert! Looking to learn and share with you all.

I've also just joined the Yahoo Group Silicon Valley Chickens - if you're a member there, please say hello!

Linda

Nice to meet you Linda,  glad you joined the Backyard chickens flock.  If you have any ??? birds  just post photos at  "what breed or gender is this," and they will sort them out for you.

 

The jury is "out"   on the no crow collars.  Sometimes they work, and sometimes not at all.  They also can cause injury if not  adjusted properly.  Too loose and the roos have been known to get a foot stuck, trying to scratch them off.  Too tight and the bird suffers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I'll see if I can get some close up shots of him/her today.
