Hi! I, too, live in San Marcos and am interested in buying a couple of chickens. I am new to this and am curious what exactly would I need other than a coop, brooder, and chicken feed? Is there a breed that you know of that does well in the crazy Texas weather and is good with children? About how much are start-up costs and do you know a place here or near here where I can get everything? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
Check out on Facebook a place called "Cen Tex Farm Fresh Eggs, Chicks, Chickens & Poultry accessories". This a Facebook page with individuals in the central Texas area that sell chickens/supplies. You might find the birds you are looking for from an individual. They have a portion of the page that deals with things people are selling. Good luck!
