    That's interesting, I've been through diff parts of CA a couple of times in my life (when I was way younger) but don't know much about it's weather, just imagined it was warm and all b/c of the citrus fruit growing and stuff we can't grow here. Also just think of desert more then mountains for So. CA.

    KKH, there is always making him a little chicken sweater! lol

    Yes citrus and grape vines. But smudge pots are kept handy during winter. It is the almost contunuous sunshine that makes for 12 months of gardening. I am not sure of the exact amount of area is used for farming but it must be less than 1/3.

    I got a new peep from under a broody just a couple hours ago and had to share a picture or two.
    It looks to be splash and mottled and has a tiny bow tie. The dad is blue mottled(small bow tie) and mom is mahogany and blue(big bow tie).

    Congratulations oldorchardfarms! Makes me wonder how many people are breeding for the SOP...probably not many. They're so much fun to mix with other breeds. Way to represent Fred!!!

    Georgia Boy, here's one of the black skinned chicks. Actually the NN chicks are more charcoal skinned than black.
