    I seem to have some sort of wierd attraction to chickens. Moved to Norco in Aug of 08, I have one hen, she was a rescue, that had been hit by a trash truck. My hubby works in the trash industry and it has been very good to us. TRASH IS GOOD! I had the chicken thing before getting the hen. I'm getting the coop this week and very excited to get started. What do I do? Any input will be great.

    [​IMG] from Sacramento... where's Norco exactly?

    I'm pretty new to the chicken thing myself, but wanted to say hello. Best of luck with your hen, and it was nice of you to take her in.

    Norco is in Southern California, Riverside County. Looking to obtain some chickens locally. Eggs! I'm not ready for eggs! Would rather start with chickens ready for the coop.

    Oh I am just messin it wont take you long to be BEGGING for test eggs trust me!!! look when I joined! I now own a sportsmans 1502 incubator and just set 13 black jersey giant eggs and 36 buckeye eggs, not to mention the 100 plus quail I set 2 weeks ago!!!! plus I got about 100 more to do soemthing with in the next few days!!! a friend in town a few hndred miles away is sending me eggs that she cant fit in her bator..... I also have 12 or so guinea fowl eggs in there and about 8 chukar eggs.......and the best thing is I cant even have 1 chicken where I live but I do!!!!I got me 10 chickens 2 chukars and I have NO idea how many quail button quail Oh yeah I forgot I put two button quail eggs in the battor too.... I also have 4 modern game bantams...... (which are my most favorite bird of them all!!!!

    See its addictive and these people here will help you feed your adiction so dont think for one second that if you come on here asking for help with that addiction any one will do anything but feed it!!!! and you (as I was told) were forewarned that this place is adictive!!! and no one is going to tell you to stop... cause we are all enablers as well as junkies!

    I was just trying to be goofy and funny... this place ROCKS!!! any given friday night you will find me here reading up!!! as will you find most of us BYC'ers!!!!

    Hi! [​IMG]
    We live in the High Desert not far from ya! [​IMG] DH works in Riverside and I work in San Bernardino.

    What do I do? Any input will be great.

    The best advice I can give for your new coop, etc is LOTS of shade and LOTS of water! Especially for heat like we had last weekend!

    As long as your coop is draft free with good ventilation, has nests and perches, access to a run with food and water somewhere for them...you should be good! You may need to cover the run to protect from hawks (depending on your area).​
