    Intro in Concord, CA

    HI ! this will be my second go round with chickens. Previous flock aged out, my kids were not interested any more, and I took a break. Now I've moved to a new house, and it had a cute little playhouse in the back yard. I was contemplating how I was going to get rid of this solidly built...

    I am in California, so you MUST be in driving distance from Atascadero, CA. We are under shipping quarentine and chicks/eggs cannot go through the postal service, sooo... I am willing to roadtrip a bit :D

    Neighbor complaining about noisy hens; what can I do?

    I never had an account here until now, though I often "lurk" here for advice for my chickens. The reason I made this account is because this is an "emergency". I'm a teen living in Lancaster, California. I have 3 hens and two juvenile chickens. Just today, my mom had said my new neighbor(s)...

    Hi all, I am Bailey and new to both this forum and chickens! Luckily, my other half has had them all his life, so he’s a big help. I’m currently designing “Chicken Fort Knox,” as we live in a redwood forest with a ton of rascally raccoons. We’re digging down with two feet deep with 2” x...

    Looking for quality Croad Langshans in northern CA and Nevada. We fell in love with Croad Langshans, and we are replacing much of our flock with Langshans. We have crummy luck when it comes to the pullet/cockerel ratio. We got four chicks, lost one, and the surviving three were all boys. We...

    Sapphire Olive Egger Rooster

    I have a beautiful sapphire olive egger that turned out to be a rooster. I assume he is a cross between a blue copper Marans (Blue plumage and feathers on legs) and crested cream Legbar (crest). He is not an aggressive rooster at all. While my other roosters have pecked me when I go to pick them...

    Virulent Newcastle Disease or VND, Lots of Anguish, Little Solutions Offered

    Wow, what a disaster for the backyard chicken community in California. Just got through reading the SOB post (save our birds) and what struck me was a lot of anger and heart break and little discussion on what is best for the backyard chicken community. And I know this is a sore point for...

    Hi everyone, We live in Santa Barbara County just below the Thomas Fire burn scar. We got tons of smoke and ash during the fire (we did evacuate including the chickens to another area) but our chickens seemed to be fine afterward with no respiratory problems. Unfortunately, over the past...
