    Been lurking this site for some time anxiously awaiting my chickens and now they are here! Three turned into eight so far! Ca White, Wyandotte, Welsummer, Delaware, Ameracauna, Australorp, Easter Egger and Sp Sussex. Really want a Cream Legbar and Olive Egger! Only in it for the eggs and new pets. I am a wildlife rehabber for 20 years with rabbits as my focus. Always loved and had animals most of my life. 4H’r as a kid.
    Aviary/coop in process and yes planning on intergrating my chickens with other birds I already have, such as finches, parakeets and 2 doves. Yes we are taking steps to split off if we have to intervene.
    We have 2 dogs, 7 cats and an Amazon Gray. We just moved from inland San Diego to the coastal area up on a hill to care for mom.
    We recently cut down a Tipajuana tree and want to use branches for the birds, does anyone know if they will hurt them?
    Thanks for all your help!

    Funny how just a few chickens can suddenly grow like that! :D

    Here's a link to the state threads:
    Someone that lives in your general area may know about the tree.

    Thanks for joining us!

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens! We are glad you joined the flock! :welcomeBYC is a helpful site providing all of the information you need to know about poultry. There is always space for members on the BYC roost! :highfive:

    It seems as if your flock will be expanding expeditiously. I am planning to do a breeding project with olive eggers. A Black Copper Maran (Dark brown egg gene) x Easter Egger (blue and green egg gene). Are you in San Diego California though?

    Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!

    I would guess that the branches would be fine...but I have no clue what kind of tree that is.:confused:

    Finches are fun...had some. Found out the zebras can really triple in! I had another type, can't think of name right now. Had some babies, did well first time out..second time, not so well. Not sure why. WELCOME!!
