    Walnut Creek, CA that is... [​IMG]

    Just getting into the game having nearly completed our backyard "Coop-torian" (our Victorian
    styled redwood coop). With some eggs ID'd for order and an incubator on hand, my 9 yr old
    daughter's excitement level increases daily.

    Chicken breed interests:
    • Easter Eggers
    • Copper Marans
    • Vorwerks ("Golden Lakenvelder")

    No surprises, right? Well, perhaps the Vorwerks are a bit off the beaten track, I suppose...

    We're targeting Feb/Mar for the eggs. The neighborhood has 3 other backyard flocks so I'm
    not without some local assistance. Nevertheless, thanks in advance to any and all for your
    comments, insights, and assistance. Your experience is much appreciated.

    Next stop: The Newbies section! (Yeehaw!)

    Illegal in [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Pittsburgh? Really? I guess its illegal in WC as well, actually... Sometimes its good to be in county. [/FONT][​IMG]

    I'm sure my interests will wander after the first round of layers, so 'interesting breeds' may indeed be of interest
    at some point.

    Thx!
