    Hello All -

    I am an urban/backyard chicken wannabe, doing my part in writing city council members to get chicken-keeping legal here (check it out if you're interested: http://eatsacramento.wordpress.com/ ). It's looking good for the law to change in 2010.

    I joined to hopefully learn A LOT before I get my first chickens. (Of course, I still have to talk the spouse into it...) I daydream of coop designs and attempt to sketch them on graph paper. I would be really into finding chicken-keepers in Sac who might let me hang around and get a little hands-on exposure/experience.

    I'm also an avid gardener (though without as much time as I would like), trying to gradually fit something edible into every possible corner of my yard. I have a dog (black lab mix) and two cats (all three rescues), and a small city yard around our small little bungalow.

    Looking forward to reading here!

    peace,
    Kelly

    Have you seen that coop that looks like a trash can holder? Stealthy!

    Love Sacramento - such a fun place in Old Town!
