Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. My wife and I were both raised in Texas not too far from where you are (Blue Ridge for her, Greenville for me), and I have relatives even closer to you in Weatherford, TX. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
