    Hi my name is Heather and happy to find this nifty forum, thank you for creating it:)

    We live in a small farming town in Northern California and are sprucing up a little outbuilding to be a new coop for spring 2019. We will be new chicken owners. Currently we have a few teenagers (we’re in our 40’s) and a handsome smart Golden Retriever ..... yeah.. so I’m really excited about the plans for our chickens yet a little nervous about how to handle the situation of training our young dog on how to behave around them. Of course we’ll have eveything enclosed and they’ll have a large run that nothing should get into, BUT I know there will be some encounters because it’s just inevitable- plus I plan to let them out occasionally to roam the property. Anyway hopefully I’ll get some feedback on that at some point but glad to be here!

    Hi, I'm glad that you joined us here. Good luck on the coop and your chickens!
     
  10. Hi Heather and welcome to BYC! I’min Northern California, too, but in the By Area. Are you way up north?
    Also, I think your Golden Retriever will be great with chickens with some training!
