New to Oregon, new to chickens!

I am so happy to have found this site! I feel like I now belong to a growing community of fellow fowl family members. My family and I recently sold our condo in Santa Cruz, Ca. and bought a home in Tenmile, Oregon. I was really hoping to have chickens for eggs once we moved, and the property even already came with a chicken coop! I love it here, though I am an ocean girl at heart, and we now live about 1 hour and 20 minutes away from the Oregon coast. So I will miss my quick trips to my favorite sea glass hunting beaches in Santa Cruz. I make jewelry from the Sea Glass and stones I comb from the beaches. But I also enjoy the country living, with the hills, trees, pastures, no traffic or crowds. It's peaceful and beautiful out here.
So, now that we have the land with a coop, I am delving into this learning process.
In the meantime, I also have an English Bulldog, 11 years old, two cats, a bunny that also came with the property, a 13 year old boy, a 25 year old daughter who lives in the Santa Cruz area, and a retired husband.
I hope to work for the Roseburg Forest Products company once I'm settled in here in our new home.
Thanks for adding me and I look forward to getting to know more of you and about chickens!

Hi and welcome to BYC. Exciting times ahead, in your new home, I'm sure.

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.

Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource -

You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

All the best
