Hello from West Texas!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am new to chickens and BYC.  I have been wanting chickens for a while since we recently purchased a 10 acres house/pecan orchard.  I have always wanted my own little 'farm' so I thought I would start small with some chickens.  I found BYC while researching chicken coop designs.  I used 'Miss-tis-coop' from this site and just finished it yesterday.  I bought 6 pullocks and 1 leghorn recently and one of my friends who raises chickens is making some more for me. She has about 25 in her incubator.   Here is a picture of my chickens (and 2 ducks) and their new coop.  I seem to be like the rest of yall because I found a catalog with all kinds of different chickens and I am so excited to get some more.  (my husband is trying to talk me into waiting a little bit)

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

Congrats on your new coop and flock! With 10 acres I'd be a dangerous person with the chick catalog.
