Hi from Huntsville, TX (just north of Houston). My family and I are fairly new to the "chicken world" (June 08) but have quickly fallen in love with it! Some more than others... in other words, my wife is worried about me! We currently have about 40 chicks to 6 month olds. We live in the country and have 1 Great Pyrenees dog named Samson, 3 cats, 4 guineas, 3 Peking ducks, 2 parakeets, and our 40 (and growing) flock. Putting up with me and all this is my fantastic wife and 2 boys.
