Hi all! I'm new here and to chickens. I reside in Hemet, CA. I'm a produce dept. Manager here in town. Married for 5 years this April. With our first son Nehemiah (9 months) our garden and work I got my hands full. We grow a garden every year. This year we will be expanding into our front yard! As a produce manager I know the importance of quality, organic fruits and veggies. With the new expansion. I have room in my backyard for my first Chicken Coop!!! The self sufficiency is very exciting. I'm setting up later this week after we replace our antediluvian back fence. Right now I'm looking to buy some Rhode island red hens from a hatchery in town. Would also like to add a Wynadette and/or Plymouth rock. I'm definitely looking for egg production. I'll ask alot of questions, do alot of Googling and am looking forward to conversing with seasoned pro's! Give me a shout if your from town!
