I have been wandering around this website and forum for months now but just recently started posting. This place has been indispensable for me, since I have never had chickens before. My 4 Buff Orpington pullets are thriving. I got them as new babies late last spring. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I still don't know if my chickens are legal, but there are others in my (downtown) neighborhood who have what I guess to be Silkies. I try to be a good neighbor at all times. Thank you for the coop pages. I built my coop based on a nice one I saw there. Every question I have had, I have come here to research. This is a great site. I finally joined in November, but still just hanging around getting information from the "sages." It's true, I have found this site to be addictive. Great info and great people. Thanks again.
