    Just saying hello. I don't have any chickens, I do have a dog and 6 kids. I enjoy reading, working out. I'm researching the idea of fresh eggs in my back yard. Going to take it slow, I live in Lancaster, CA. My wife, the intelligent, sophisticated, executive wonders who wants chickens in the back yard ? "Well I do"

    Tell her at least 70+ thousand and that's just on THIS site.

    She'll be surprised when she realizes how diverse chicken owners are.

    have her look at some breeds with you. she will be amaized at how pretty some chickens are. She may be thinking of big white chickens running around the yard. there are also tons of bantan chickens if she doesnt want large birds!!!!

    wats for dinner, go for it. Home eggs are much better. BTW, my husband used to live in Lancaster for a long time. He used to have a ranch there called : Last Chance Ranch.
