SoCal Back Country

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I live in Southern California, east of San Diego. Just south of Julian in Gold Rush Territory. My chicken-owning started 3 years ago when my daughter brought home 3 mystery chicks from a swap meet in Tijuana on Easter Sunday. So, I set 'em up in the bathroom and a friend got started building us a coop. [IMG]
Pic 1 - previous New Year's Day when we got snow. (That is pretty much the extent of it. 2-3 days of light snow and...done.)
Pic 2 - The coop during the spring
Pic 3 - The 3 swap meet chickens, (one turned out to be a rooster), and one rescued chicken from a chicken ranch up here. She was getting old I guess. I have had her now for 2 years and she STILL lays.
We recently acquired 2 additional chickens, but no pics yet. Thank you!

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

Thank you all! Weinie (that's the rooster) says "thanks" as well, for the compliment. He is quite vain! 🐓
