    My name is Renee and I live in South Texas, that place where it gets really hot! I currently have three Deleware hens and just purchased some chicks from Ideal Hatchery, so I just had to log in and post some pictures [​IMG] We also have 5 Nigerian Dwarf goats, 1 cat, and a lot of indoor spoiled doggies! I've always come to Backyard chickens for information and questions, like for a little chick in our new batch with crooked toes. It really is a great forum [​IMG]

    Hi

    I have seen a great post about taping crooked toes for your little ones. I'll try to find ti and send it to you.
    Also with the super hot temps in Texas, you'll want a really good watering system, maybe even a backup waterer.

    Welcome to BYC!

    The weathers been great these last few days, we actually stayed below 100*, yesterday it only got to 94*! [​IMG]

    Hmm, that sounds really sad when I look at it, I think I need to move lol. We started bringing our three hens inside in the afternoon this last week, it was just too hot out there (105*+). I found the site about Chick Orthepedics, linked from Feathersite, as well as a few forum posts that helped too. We'll be checking her toes this evening to see if they're any better *crosses fingers*
