    Hi All,

    I have visited the web-site several times. Got on today and joined as I had a sick pet chicken. Thank you for the quick response and all the great info!
    My name is Lorri. We live in Southern CA. I am an outlaw chicken owner ... and proud of it!

    We started the UF&G with 4 bunnies then got 3 chicks...which quickly grew to 16 pullets and chicks! No eggs yet!!! That's right no eggs! There are 4 that look like full grown chickens and I am wondering if they are on STRIKE. Still buying free range, organic store bought (yuk) eggs...hope this changes soon! Looking forward to meeting some of you and learning a lot more about my girls!
