    Hi,
    I just found this great site, and I love it!! I've had chickens for about 16 years on my own, but was taught to love them by my dear grandmother. Before forums, I would call her up as a newbie with all of my questions [​IMG]
    I live in CA.
    I currently have 13 sex link and 2 easter egger pullets. My old hens are a mix, with the eldest being about 8 years old. She's an old Maran hen. Would like more Marans ( any variety) as with her I only got 2 pullets and the rest roos with that hatch.
    Still have my old hova bator, but not even sure it works anymore. Now I cast my luck with buying chicks.
    What a wonderful site here! So much info!!

    Welcome from another Californian - in the wine country of the Western Sierra foothills.

    You'll find a slew of information in BYC and get to know a great group of like-minded chicken keeping folks.
