Hello From Texas!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone!

 

My name is Jennifer and I live in Athens, Texas.  I've been a lurker on BYC for several years now and finally decided to join!  I grew up around chickens when I was young and have had them recently for the last 3 1/2 years.  I currently have 11 chickens, five are 3 1/2 year old hens (3 brown sex-links, 1 gold laced wyandotte and 1 silver phoenix) and six are 12 week old pullets (3 barred rocks and 3 black sex-linked). My 12 week old flock is still in their teenage brooder.  They are outgrowing it so quickly!  I so enjoy having this young group around, I really love chickens!

Welcome to BYC - you have nice, healthy looking birds.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

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
