    Today I found out that my 4 girls are intrepid explorers even in the rain. I wasn't sure how they would react as I had read many postings pro and con. I let them out to free range as usual and after a 20 second loud discussion among themselves they took off as usual, spent all day either hunting worms and put themselves to bed as they usually do. This investment in hens, coop, food and feeders has created the best fun I have had in years and the grand kids love them too. Our small dog is a little too curious but our Rhode Island bigger girl pecked her on the nose and that took care of that!

    Sounds like your flock had a good day! Chickens are such a joy- they are little angels.

    I am in Hemet also but am out of town so we did not get to watch the chicken's reaction to the rain.

    We are in Hemet also (County). I was hoping to find some local chicken folk! Just getting started in chickens for my 3 sons who want poultry 4-H projects. I raised chickens as a kid.[​IMG]

    I have family in Hemet, but haven't been there in over 40 years. <sigh>

    We live in the County of Hemet and have 3 hens who are all free range and all laying eggs. They are pets for us and our grand kids, in fact I have to make sure they are allowed to be chickens and not carried around too much. Welcome to the valley.

    Not new to the valley. We've been here going on 9 years now. Just new to backyard chickens. I grew up in Temecula and had chickens there. :D Raising them in the suburbs is a whole lot more difficult!
