We are new to chickens. We just got three new chicks on Sunday. A Buff laced polish, a Silver polish, and a Wellsummer. The rest of our happy little family includes my husband, 5 year old daughter, 1 year old son, a cat, and a dog. Some of my other hobbies include photography and drawing. I just wanted to say hello but don't know if I'll be staying. The man at the feed store was almost positive we could keep chickens in our city, in the San Francisco East Bay area. Ummm...he was incorrect. We found BackYardChickens.com while looking up coops for the chicks we now are not sure what to do with.
