    I'm new too (in NJ). Lived in So Cal for 17 years, didn't know anyone in the OC with chickens. Did have a neighbor in Long Beach with one though.

    Quote:Thanks for the welcome. Sorry to hear about your Roo. We got a Roo in our first batch of chicks and had to send him to a farm and I actually cried giving him up. Not the same, I know. But its amazing how fast they get into your heart. He was a beautiful boy. RIP [​IMG]

    Not sure about the cold yet. We are just getting our first chicks in April (all cold hardy breeds though).
