    I just picked up my first pullets at a great farm in Walnut Creek, CA (TruNorth Farm) and the owners recommended this site for chicken fun. WOW! Great site! after a few minutes wandering around I figured I'd join. We're new to the chicken world, and my kids and I are SO excited! Do you guys ever meet up? All my friends think I'm a bit strange for wanting chickens in my yard, and I'd love to meet fellow flock minded individuals.

    The new family members are:
    -Rhode Island Red
    -Blue Wyandotte
    -Speckled Sussex

    [​IMG] from another East Bay chicken owner. Nifty is also from the East Bay, so you're in good company!

    We do meet up occasionally. We had a Chickenstock in Walnut Creek in August, and we plan to do it again next year. Last weekend, a few of us went to the Santa Cruz County Fair for the Poultry show and the garlic fries! [​IMG] And, just this morning, I met LilBizzy (from Maryland) for coffee, since she and her husband are in the area visiting family.
