tufelhundin from Yucca Valley, CA - High Desert Im in the Marines, stationed at Twentynine Palms, CA Marine Corps Base. I own a home in Yucca Valley. I'm a year from retirement. I planted my first garden here a week ago. I am interested in raising a few chickens. I'm from Texas, where my mother still lives and raises cattle on a small farm. We were always garden people. I'm also interested in raising chickens here, obviously.
