Chris here. I live in the Bay Area of CA and have or should I say had four chickens. Just lost our Speckled Sussex suddenly, very heartbroken, loved that little hen. Have three left and just have to say how special chickens are in my life. We started our little chicken family last summer and has been such a wonderful experience taking care of them. Thank you for this forum and all the other great folks in here that love chickens and the joy they bring!
