    We are newchics. We are in Texas about 20 mins southeast of San Antonio. Moved to Texas from Silicon Valley area in California in 2003

    My daughter and I are starting our adventure in chickens. She is 11 and we are going to integrate all of our experiences into her Girl Scout troop so hopefully we do good.

    A neighbor who has a mix of chickens gave us 9 new eggs yesterday. We have them incubating so here we go. Hope to read a lot of good info to learn from all of you. Anything you have for suggestions we welcome

    Thanks for letting us read :)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a great experience for children. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of eggs are you incubating?
