    My name is Alena and I'm raising 5 golden buff orpingtons and 2 rhode Island reds. As a 12 year old child I raised 2 rhode island reds for fun until the neighbors dogs decided to play keep-away with them. So here I am, 37 years old with two teenagers myself with my loving boyfriend, raising some chickens to replenish my stock of eggs during cupcake season.

    Any advice will be most helpful.

    Nice to meet you Alena, hope you will enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. You can also post on your state thread. Just put California in the search box above and it will come up. You may find other BYCERS living near you.
