North Texas Newbie

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Greetings all!
New to the site and located in north Texas. We built some raised beds for our garden this year and now adding chickens to the mix. I'm in the process of building a 4 x 8 coop with six nesting boxes and will add an additional 8 x 12 attached run. When it's finished I'll post some pics to get your input. Excited about this...I was raised on a 126 acre farm and miss the satisfaction of not being totally reliant on commercial produce and eggs.

No chickens yet. Didn't want to put them into temporary housing until I got the permanent coop finished. Should be another week or two to finish it. I'll then get my pullets from a local here for free. Said she has a lot of teenagers. .lol
Once that's done I'll start on the run.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
