    Hello everyone! I live in Southern California, east of San Diego. Just south of Julian in Gold Rush Territory. My chicken-owning started 3 years ago when my daughter brought home 3 mystery chicks from a swap meet in Tijuana on Easter Sunday. So, I set 'em up in the bathroom and a friend got started building us a coop. [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG]
    Pic 1 - previous New Year's Day when we got snow. (That is pretty much the extent of it. 2-3 days of light snow and...done.)
    Pic 2 - The coop during the spring
    Pic 3 - The 3 swap meet chickens, (one turned out to be a rooster), and one rescued chicken from a chicken ranch up here. She was getting old I guess. I have had her now for 2 years and she STILL lays.
    We recently acquired 2 additional chickens, but no pics yet. Thank you!

    I'm so glad you joined! Please feel free to look around and give advice or ask for it! Also if you want to find out what breed your chickens are you can ask in the "What Breed? Or Gender?" Forum.

    Thank you all! Weinie (that's the rooster) says "thanks" as well, for the compliment. He is quite vain! [​IMG]
