Hello Other Bay Area Cluck Ploppers. I am up on Skyline Blvd with the gusty weather or blazing hot sun coming from the Pacific Ocean at me here at 20 Paw & Claw Farm. Elevation 2,000 feet. Looking on a map we are above the Fioli Estate and on the coast line the Ritz Carlton. Trees are Redwoods and some oaks. We adopted our hens from a lovely family with tons of petting to the hens who are moving to Colorado. AND we are adding to the group with our first order from Murray McMurray. Currently have two 3yo Ameraucanas (one lays blue, one lays beige'ish green) about 4 a week. And our Cuckoo Maran laid dark brown daily. She was nabbed by the local wildlife after a latch change failure on her 21st day with us! Devastated by our failure to protect. Now have electrical fence for the night around their area, a sensor light, and double locking on each entry. We made a traveling run for daily outings around the property. Next will be building an 8'x8'x6'H run to accommodate the existing ladies and add our new group in the next coming months. May 9th, 2016 we get 16 chicks (3 breeds) and are keeping 9+1 to start. One Golden Polish ($10) is still available for adoption - details if you are interested. We have already placed the other 5. We intend to raise our 10 chicks through the first 5-6 months and then put up for adoption another 2 or 3 at that time. Keeping out group to a total of 10 for a while.
Will share more as we start to raise the chicks in coming weeks - but looking forward to hearing all your input.
