    Hello everyone,
    2nd year raising feathered babies. I started last year with 12 chicks from the tractor supply store, ended with 8 lovely gals (1 Rhode Island Red, 2 Golden Sexlinks, 5 black Pullets mix hen) It went so well with our ladies that we decided to add 15 more babies to our flock. We added 2 Easter Eggers, 4 Olive Eggers, 4 Plymouth Rocks, and 5 Brahmas.. They have finally started laying, I got a nice varieties of colored eggs. I have been selling my eggs for $3 dozen. For first-time buyers I also include a color cartoon that they keep and to refill. I charge $4 and then the refills are $3. We've been getting about 16 to 17 eggs a day my older girls haven't been producing as much. I hope I'm charging enough for my eggs, I put at least one blue egg and two different olives and the rest are brown ranges to light color cream. And oh yeah we live in Cedar Park Texas. Can't wait to see what else I can learn and share!!!
    Smiles,
    Ngoc ( pronounced knock)

    I really like the way you handle egg sales. I would think that would put your first in line
    when someone new wants fresh eggs. Welcome to BYC:thumbsup

    G’Day from down under Ngoc :frow Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    I note you mention you are from Texas, but if you include your general location on your profile, this will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    BYC has Topic of the Week articles which I have found to be a great resource and a one stop shop for questions which may have already been discussed within the BYC membership group.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Glad you're here !

    A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
    It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

    One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)
