    My husband and I live just outside the city of Austin (SW of it), and we just got our first chickens a couple of weeks ago.

    I've been stalking the forums for a while, but decided to finally make a profile.

    Neither of us has ever owned chickens before, but we're the new parents of 35 new babies in a fairly large assortment of different breeds. So far all is going well, and everyone seems healthy and active. We still just need to figure out the breeds on a few of them. =)

    Looking forward to contributing more,
    -Helen

    Congrats on the new babies! When they get a bit older, you can post their pics in our What Gender section here on BYC for some good ID-ing.

    Welcome aboard and enjoy your new flock!
