I own 5 Havanese dogs, and have been active in the agility community with them.

(6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

My husband and I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. We have about 2 acres and have been wanting to get chickens for a while. Our current home was our vacation home until we moved here permanently last fall. The commute is longer in miles, but worth it. We just had a record winter rain fall this past winter, which almost made us reconsider our decision.
Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. I'm sure your rainy days were just a fluke for California, so I doubt that you have to worry about them next year. It has to be better than severe draught.
Hello and welcome to our community.

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.
