Just joined yesterday after lurking around for awhile. I'm born and raised TX but mostly South TX.
Currently in Henderson which is in the area of Longvuew, Tyler, Arp, Kilgore, Jacksonville.
No chickens yet but am hoping in about 12 days.
Am thinking of repurposing 2 old walk in dog kennels (each 10' long x 5' wide x 6' high) for when they can be moved out.
Recently bought "Raising Chickens for Dummies" and "Chicken Health for Dummies".
Between the books and looking around the BYC site I've already learned a lot and looking forward to much more.
We went and bought a heat lamp a few days ago.
I have a large 55 gallon rubber maid tote that I had planned on using when I bring them home.
Each day gets more exciting than the last .... Like waiting for Christmas!!!!!
My husband and mom think I've lost my mind. Maybe I have BUT I'm loving it
Great to be here !!!!!
