Calling all Orange County, California Chicken Owners! I'd love to connect with backyard chicken owners in Orange County, CA to chat about raising our chickens and share tips on best backyard chicken raising practices in smaller backyard spaces, swap advice, get tips to make raising chickens easier, possibly find people to split future chick orders with, and just have fun chatting about our chickens. I'd love to get a good "resource" page going. I hear there is a Facebook page for Orange County, CA chicken owners, but I haven't been able to find it (If you know it, please pass on the info). I'm located in Rancho Santa Margarita (part of the "underground" chicken community) and have 4 little hens: 2 Easter Eggers (Violet & Petunia) and 2 Australorps (Olive & Lavender) who are currently 21 weeks old and NOT laying yet (sigh), but provide tons of entertainment with their personalities and antics! I got my chicks from Wagon Train Feed Store in Orange, CA in October and am raising my girls on Scratch & Peck feed. Please share where you are from, introduce us to your flock members, share an anecdote about your chicks, favorite tip or best practice if you'd like, a source you use to help in your chicken raising, or anything else you want to share! www.wagontrainoc.com - Feed store in Orange, CA that carries chicks all year round. You can call and request them to order you a specific breed. They use Privett Hatchery in New Mexico as their supplier. www.rainbowmealworms.net - Insect feeder supply located in Compton, CA. Great local source for affordable live mealworms, crickets, waxworms, etc. My experience with them has been awesome - they ship and deliver as promise and their quality far surpasses what I've found in big box pet stores. They breed their insects so nothing is coming from China.
