    Hello Everyone,

    We are Matt and Lettie from San Jose, CA. One of us (Matt) is new to raising chickens, while the other (Lettie) had chickens while growing up in rural Sonoma county. We are glad to join this online community, and have already picked up good tips. We were about to locate our coop in our side yard, until we found information on this site that said this would be illegal in San Jose. We would hate to get a visit from the SWAT team, so this was good to know.

    Hi :welcome Matt & Lettie

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm so pleased you found out about your coop situation before you got it set up. It would have been a real shame to have got a visit if you had. Do you have your new chickens now?

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Hi MyMillieFleur,

    We have an Ameraucana, a Black Australorp, and 2 Buff Orpingtons. I hope I spelled these right. They are about a month old.
