Well, it all started with the April 2009 issue of Sunset magazine. One look at that Buff Orpington, and I knew I had to have one. That was the the beginning of our family transformation to living as self sufficient as we could. We live in Southern California, and our yard isn't that big. So, we needed to make the most of what space we had. Our plan is to have the veggie garden in front and the chickens in the back.
