Good morning! I've been trolling Backyard Chickens for a while now and finally am a member. We live in the San Fernando Valley where families live in between the the gang lands and the stuff of dreams. I'm a farm girl married to a wonderful man that needs to be here in the city so naturally I've brought chickens to the concrete jungle just to see some life out here. It is very challenging to even drive to get feed, but our kids and all visitors love to sit, pet and play with our chickens. We have 3 Barred Rock hens, all a year old now.
