My daughter/son-in-law now live in Redlands, CA. I was naturally scared by a move so far away (from Oklahoma), but found Redlands to be a nice place. Great relief. They are buying a house with a decent little yard. My daughter likes the home eggs much better than store eggs, so I suggested maybe they should get 2-3 hens. She was very open to the idea. I haven't got around to checking to see if chickens are allowed in the town, but imagine hens are OK. My bigger questions are how to outfit them out there. I have the typical run-down farm-style coops with loose chickens running amok. They'd need something nicer. My knee jerk reaction is to see if Home Depot, etc will have some type of back-yard coop/run affair. I see those things advertised lots of places. Are there farm stores out there like Tractor Supply that sell chicks, and the like? Basically, I'm asking you folks to do this work for me, I guess. I mail order chicks every year, but don't think she'd want enough to justify that. I'll have to check out the coop ads available here; they also have no truck to haul things. Thanks.
