We live in the suburban San Francisco area and are in the process of preparing for chicks. We want to be as ready and armed with info as possible before we order/pick them up at the feed store. Our feed store doesn't seem to carry what we are really looking for in the way of bantams. If anyone knows of other feed stores with a better selection in the greater Bay Area, please let me know. We're in Concord. I'm glad I found this site! I've learned a lot already! We are still trying to figure out which kinds we want...4-6 bantam hens is the goal. Any suggestions?
