The e-mail that contained my password suggested I stop off here at the introduction page, so: Stormy and I live in the Central Valley of California, in the old suburbs of a small town. We started our first garden here in March and have been expanding it ever since. In August we got two pullets at the flee market. They both turned out to be Bantams of some sort. In October one was laying and one was crowing. We got them for the eggs but couldnt bear to get rid of him. So three weeks ago we got him a full grown leghorn hen. Its so funny watching him try to stay on top of her the full 8 seconds. She isnt laying for some reason. Were working on it. Guess thats about it.
