A big hello from Texas to all! My name is Lupe and I'm from Deep South Texas, as a young child my grandmother kept laying hens for pets and eggs of course. I have about 9 acres of clear farmland that i want to raise farm animals on starting with chickens. I stumbled upon your site while doing some google searches about raising chickens and so far I'm loving it. Hope to make many new friends and learn about raising chickens.
