Hello, I'm from Southern California and am an avid chicken lover (who on here isn't?). I'm pretty new to Backyard Chickens but have already fallen in love with this site- it has almost everything imaginable about chickens (well, except the chickens themselves ) I'm also fairly new to owning chickens. I have three- a 2 year old leghorn hen named Lily (my BFF) and two partridge silkies (4-months old) called Fluffy and Rose. I hatched Fluffy and Rose out from a styrofoam incubator I made myself (got a 100% hatch rate on my first try!). That's about all the chicken experience I have so far, and I hope to get to know all of you chicken lovers here!
