    Hi all,

    I'm fairly new to the site but this is my first post. This site is awesome and I love looking at all the chick/chicken pictures! My boyfriend and I are the only ones out of my friends group that raises chickens so it's great to have a forum to research tips/tricks and ask questions.

    As for our chickens, we just started raising them a few years ago. We have a Buff Orpington rooster (Rocky 3.... RIP Rocky 1 and Rocky 2), some buff, white, and black cochins, and a few silkies. Their babies, however, are all mixed and adorable! My boyfriend calls one of them a hippogriff like Buckbeak from Harry Potter. :D

    Looking forward to meeting more of yall and posting on the threads! :)

    Welcome to BYC! Nice flock of feathered beauties and I love the kitty sweater. We leased a ranch in Pipe Creek in the '80s. The last time I was there, I hardly recognized the area it had grown so much. I miss the Hill Country, and the runs into Bandera for Tex Mex at the OST!

    Not sure when you were here last but it's growing even more now. They're FINALLY proposing high speed fiber optic internet from BEC in the hill country area. No more satellite and phone hot spots!! And I love OST! It's still there with the same 'ol good food. :)
