Howdy from Texas!!!

Hello everyone! My husband and I are new to raising chickens. I am so excited to hear about your chicken experiences. We only have 3 right now, but we are expecting more next month.

Welcome to BYC! I'm in Texas too, near Ft Worth. Also, welcome to the wonderful world of chickens! What breeds have you got?
It's funny, I was just thinking today about how quickly chickens took over my life! We got out very first chicks, 15 red rangers delivered through the mail, just three weeks shy of a year ago. And since then we've learned to process our own chicken, had nine different breeds (plus added turkeys!) and cared for 88 chickens total, we've sold eating eggs, hatching eggs, then got incubators and hatched out little fluffs of our own, learned to candle, sold chicks, treated illness, learned to ferment, grow fodder, farm meal worms, and on and on. I love it and I've learned so much in just a year and I know I've only barely scratched the surface. But if you have any questions, everyone here has always been so helpful.
My menagerie: Buff Orpington chickens, Bronze and Bourbon Red Turkeys, Coturnix Quail, a Labrador, an American Pit Bull, two wild and crazy boys, a loving husband, and me!

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
