Hello. I'm posting to introduce myself. I'm not new to caring for backyard birds. I've had Khaki Campbell ducks and Canada Geese in the past, all free range, but had major losses to predators. This is my first time with chickens. I've started with a small coop and run to house 4 California White hens. They are currently 12 weeks old and doing great. I live in North Central Texas. This flock is a learning experience for me. If all goes well, I plan on expanding the size of the flock next year. Looking forward to reading all of the informative info on this site.
