California Thread Members List and Helpful Information

    Please post any information on shows, and events and if you are a breeder, post your information as below on the California thread and I'll add it to the list. Let's make this kind of a one stop shop for the whole state, while still being able to share information in the area threads.

    New pages have been started for the following:

    California Shows, Exhibits and Poultry Events

    California Feed Store and Supplies

    California Member's Recipe Box
    California Thread List for YOUTH GROUPS
    California Thread Breeders List
    California Meetups

    Poultry Veterinarians/ Livestock Veterinarians Located in California

    This page was started after the option for unlimited editing was stopped. The information was on the first page of the California thread . Unfortunately, I wasn't able to add the information I had started with for several months, so this was the option. I hope you all visit this page and also the California thread to keep in contact with other members in the State. We don't discriminate, so if you want to join the thread, but you are in another state, Just let us know where you are and you'll be added to the list.

    I like the area threads. It helps to get to know people who are close by, but this is a big, LOOOONG state and we now have a thread to bring all of us together.

    I have posted all of the links to date, so you can all find your areas, but still use this one to meet others around the state.

    Visit some of the shows, meetups and chicken stocks and maybe make some friends along the way. Chicken people love to get together and talk chickens. If you're looking for a certain breed that is located in California or a nearby state, please check out the breeder list down the page.

    I try to keep all the info in this post updated. Let me know if you think something might work here or if you've posted information that has not been added.

    I add names as everyone posts, so you can find California members right here in the first post. OK well, most are in California, but some will be from other states and have either moved from here, or have connections. No one is turned down unless there's a problem and I don't see that.

    Links of Interest


    You can send dead birds here for necropsy testing. I hope you don't need it, but Debi/PetRock suggested this addition and it's a good one. Thanks Debi and Ron, for the link.

    UC DAVIS FEDEX INFO: Their account # is 364343981. If you use their account number you will get to use UC Davis's discount which is up to 70% off. They said that they will bill you for the shipment after you get the report (or at the same time.) Also, FedEx and UPS both ship to the actual lab every day... the Postal Service doesn't.
