Howdy from California's Central Coast. I was an inner city girl (Baltimore). I didn't see a "real live" chicken until I was 30! I now live on 2 acres, and got my micro flock started. I have six pullets (10 weeks old). I am so pathetically funny as a chicken "farmerette". My 6 girls all have names, and each one knows her own name. I only wanted to start with 4 pullets, but I think the feed store guy thought I better give her 6 if she wants 4 to survive. Ha! I have taken more pictures of my girls than pictures of my hubby. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can, and having as much FUN as I can in this new CHICKEN WORLD! Oh by the way, their favorite song I sing them at feeding time is Beyonce's "All the Single Ladies". Yeah, I know ...but at least my husband is a psychiatric nurse if I go over the edge.
