Hey there everyone, My name is Jessica and I just wanted to say hi to all. I am a newbe to your site as a member although I have read through tons of postings. There is some amazing information in here!!!! I currently have a backyard flock in National City which is in the southern part of San Diego California. I am supposed to limit the flock to 4 birds total....oops...went over that one. I have 3 Black Australorps (1 roo), 2 ducks, and 5 cochin bantams. I just cant help myself!!!! I caught the hatching bug over a year ago and I just cant seem to control the urge. Thank god for my wonderful boyfriend Jeff who has come to love the babies as much as I do. I look forward to more awsome info and tips from everyone.
