    I'm almost 6 weeks into this chicken-keeping business and fully hooked! I adopted two Australorp hens (about 1.5 years old) and also picked up four chicks from a breeder (feather-legged Cuckoo Marans and Jersey Giants) and ended up with a pair of each breed.

    Is there anything better than sitting in the backyard with a cold beverage and watching a couple of chickens take dustbaths? The 6-week old roosters play-fighting is pretty cute, too...unfortunately, my county ordinances say, "no roosters," so they have to go. I'll be posting in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

    I can't wait to spend more time reading the forums and getting to know more chicken folks!

    Hey Sacramento - I'm up the hill in ElDorado County. I just put six 5 week olds out in my coop. I too can't resist the chicken-vision. [​IMG] Neither can our two hunting dogs for that matter. My DH thinks the 3 of us are crazy for sitting and watching the girls! Welcome!!
