Hi! I live in Sacramento and don't have any chickens yet. My parents had a flock when I was a kid. Since I joined BYC I've just been researching what kind of chickens I want, how to keep them healthy, how to make a coop, etc. I hope someday to move to a more rural area where I could get a roo. I love the sound of crowing and the presence of a noble critter strutting around proudly. I have a wonderful Black lab/border collie mix that I think will make a great herder. She's good with my guinea pigs. Any helpful tips, guys?
