I'm new to BYC, though I've been reading it daily since we got our 4 chicks several weeks ago. We live in West Hills, CA. Probably very few chickens living around here, though I could be wrong. Never thought I'd enjoy chickens, but man! I actually love these girls! I'm hoping they *are* all girlies and no roos just because we can't have them in this area. This, their first time in the coop: These two have turned out to be the best of friends: Not sure of the breed of the brown ones. Feed store said Araucana (and female), but I'm not sure about that. Our little coop, all finished: I hope the spice girls will be happy here!
