Hello, welcome to our page.
After months of planning, researching, and scouring this site, we are ready to share our story.
Well it all started with the April 2009 issue of Sunset magazine. One look at that Buff Orpington, and I knew I had to have one. That was the the beginning of our family transformation from living on whatever we bought from the store, to living self sufficient. We live in Southern California, and our yard isn't that big. So, we needed to make the most of what space we had. Our plan is to have the veggie garden in front and the chickens in the back. The first thing we did was prepare a vegatable garden. We ripped out 30 foot banana trees, a hibiscus tree, 15 foot tall ginger, and cannas. My husband built me a couple of raised beds, and I started my seedlings. While this was happening we would research everything there was to know about raising chickens. We bought 4 girls to be delivered July 27, 2009. A Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Golden Laced Wyandotte, and an Australorp. They are beautiful. Here's our progress:
The coop so far. Okay, so now we have it almost completed. The girls names are: Lucy, Petunia, Penny, and Rosalinda.
The finished coop!! Thanks for visiting!
