    Hi...my 2 boys and I are new to raising chickens and quail. But my husband did as a young boy, so we are gonna give it a go. I have raised a few parrots, so hopefully this won't be to different. LOL

    I have actually been reading ALOT of different things about getting started, and really found this site to be great. We will be picking up a few chickens from a local breeder here close to dallas on wednesday. I haven't decided actually what kind to start off with yet. But he has a variety to choose from, so it should be interesting. Just need to make sure they are compatable being kept together.

    I am also going to ATTEMPT to hatch some quail eggs. I have an incubator and have the eggs in route being shipped. I think quails will be fun and interesting as well.

    We have a nice big area to keep them in that my husband has built. I'm an animal lover so this will be an easy thing for me to adjust to once I figure it all out.

    I look forward to getting to know you all. And I am sure I will have LOTS of questions in the near future.
