I live in Austin Texas and have a variety of hens and roosters who I love dearly! We only raise them to lay eggs which I can sell to family and friends. I started with one hen house and now I have added an additional house to expand this wonderful hobby. I also have a peacock who was very lost in the Texas flood. He was walking on our property and when my daughter came home, who is a vet tech and animal lover too, he followed her into our pasture and never left. We named him Kevin, after the bird in the movie UP. He is quite a character and takes great care of the flock. I found this forum when I was searching for answers on how to help my rooster, Rudy, who was attacked by either a raccoon or a fox. I found so much helpful advice and I am so happy to be able to be a part of this community!
