    I live in sunny California and am married to a guy I have dated since I was 14! After 8 years we were finally married and I couldn't be happier. We have a little Bella dog who is our child. She is my Buff PUPington!

    I currently have one Lavender Ameraucana rooster and one LA chicken, also one mutt bantam rooster that are all about a year. I had 13, but had some predator related losses. I will be adding 31 new female chicks + possible packing peanuts in a few days.

    My coop is all made from chain link and attached apron in the ground. I have one section that is 10X10 and connected to that is a larger 20X30 area that will likely grow. Gosh chickens are addicting! I am also a member of the "golden egg" club due to how expensive this addicting hobby can be. [​IMG]For now I'll have just chickens, but in about 2 months I'll have goats thanks to a fellow BYC'er and this summer I'll be adding ducks (maybe) and a few turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner.

    I am interested in egg variety mostly, but also variety in what the chickens look like. I'll soon have the LA's previously mentioned, 2 speckled sussex, a gold lcd wyandot, a silver lcd wyandot, an ancona, a black sexlink, a red sexlink, 2 welsummers (DARK eggs), 2 marans (DARK eggs), 2 silver spangled hamburgs, a buckey, 2 other Ameraucanas, 2 light brahmas, 2 salmon faverolles (pinkish eggs), 2 turkens (Ugly and Fugly), 2 California whites (spotted!), 2 fluffy butted Buff Orps, 2 barred rocks, 1 buttercup, and 2 delawares, plus whatever packing peanuts I get. Later I'll add crested Polish, crested ducks, silkies, frizzles and/or sizzles, show girls, and anything else that might look silly enough for me. If it's silly, I want 3!

    Here are some pics of my previous flock before I lost any.
