    Hi all! We live in Somerset, CA - which is east of Sacramento, in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

    After lurking on this site for over a year, I am excited to become an official member! We are putting the final touches on our coop and run this weekend, and will be bringing home 4-6 pullets a few days later. I can hardly wait!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us and congrats on your impending flock. Great idea to get pullets - makes the learning curve more manageable.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - http://209.222.104.187/articles/category/learning-center.11/ 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.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread#post_3239224

    Hello and welcome! I lived in Cali for 7 years, but down by Modesto. I'm familiar with where you are, and it's beautiful! Really some gorgeous places in those hills.
