    Hello everyone,
    I'm Katrina. My husband and I got our first two pairs of chickens a month ago. We thought it would be a nice hobby for us. You know, a couple of fresh eggs a week, maybe eventually try meat birds. Well.. flash forward to the present, we now have 15 chickens (3 adult hens, 2 adult roos, 6 juvenile pullets, and 2 Frizzle juveniles). Sadly, we lost one pair of our original chickens but they have since been replaced with a new pair just as sweet though I still miss the ones we lost. We are just in the early stages of constructing a little chicken "village" that will be called Hensley. I've been here on BYC for the last month just trying to absorb as much information as possible. The more I learn the more fascinated I become. I adore my chickens! Especially one of my Frizzles and an Ameracauna pullet, they are so cute and personable. I would love to share photos with all of you but I have not yet figured out how to include photos in my posts. Would love a heads up on that please. Also, I would love to meet, email with and share info with anyone in Houston regarding keeping chickens through our insanely hot summers.



    With kind regards,
    Katrina

    very cool! i've been keeping chickens for a very long time and i simply love them! BYC is by far the best place to trade information! WELCOME!

    also, you need to upload your pictures to photobucket, flickr or some other photo website and copy & paste the IMG code onto your post.

    you can also right-click your image, select "copy image location" paste that onto your post, highlight it and click the IMG button you see above where you are typing in your post.

    hope it helps! perhaps another BYC member can explain it a bit better than me if you don't understand. im horrible at explaining things..
