    Hello! After lurking on here for awhile, I decided to finally join. I have no chickens and since I live in an apartment right smack in the middle of the city of Los Angeles, I can't raise any myself. However what got me lurking on this site was after my mom mentioned before that one day she might want to raise some chickens. My parents live in a suburban neighborhood in the San Francisco bay area. If my mom does end of raising chickens, it won't be right away though because they're getting the house their living in now ready to be sold. The house they're going to eventually move in is one they're renting out right now. Once the current tenants decides to move out then my parents will be fixing up the house for them to live in themselves. Right now there's a swimming pool in that backyard, but my parents will be getting rid of it and then the backyard will be a spacious area to raise a few chickens if they do decide to do so.

    But anyways since I've found this site, I've been coming to lurk every day hahaha. Everyone is right, it IS addicting. Even for someone with no chickens. I love especially reading about the pictures and stories many of you have posted about your chickens. And by reading the posts, I've been getting over my previous fear of chickens. This past Feb, I went on vacation to Maui Hawaii and each time I saw some wild chickens, I got super excited. Got a few great pics I took of them. One of the cutest thing was when I was about to fly back to CA, my parents and I were returning the rental car and waiting for the shuttle to take us to the terminal of the airport, saw this chicken family crossing the road haha. It's like a mommy, daddy, and 2 babies. I think I'll post the pics in the pics and stories section. Just wanted to say hi here [​IMG]

    Hi from SoCal.

    It seems that it will not take long for you and you will have chickens.

    Not that I do want to advocate it, but you know that there are a lot of people keeping apartment chickens like little Serama bantams, right? [​IMG]
