Hello, SacCityChickens here! I live in Sacramento California & it just became legal to have chickens in the city. My wife & I decided to get a couple of chickens. I gated-off a corner of my backyard, to keep our dog out, & bought a simple 4x8 coop from craigslist. The lady I bought the coop from also sold me a couple of young layers. One RIR, & one Barred Rock. We've had them for 4 days, & they have both started laying. The Red has layed 3 eggs in 3 days & the Rock just layed her first! I'm sooo stoked! This is hella fun! Thanks guy's, it was very helpfull finding this site. I'll take a few pictures as soon as it quits raining. We love our girls!
