    Hello all,

    I am completely new to this, plus I am jumping the gun a bit as I do not own the hens just yet. I already have the coop ready, and a nice fenced in area for them to run around in. At this point, I just need some help from any locals out there who may be able to help us locate hens. I am from the outskirts of El Paso, TX. I am hesitant to order from the internet at this point.

    I'm not from Texas or live In Texas but you could ask your feed store they might know where to get hens
    But if you want chicks I order chicks online all the time and always have a low moltality rate

    I would definitely check out the Texas state thread to find out where to get chicks. Good luck, and I hope you can find some chicks! It sounds like you're well prepared for them.[​IMG]
