Hi, Excited to find this site - living in a suburb of San Antonio TX and grew up going to grandparents on weekends so had decent exposure to chickens & always wanted some. We can have four hens legally. Just barely scratching the surface with my research & whatnot. Been married nearly 24 yrs and should retire from the Air Force in just a few short years. I won't be relocating any more with Uncle Sam so until we can escape suburbia for a few acres further out, I'm hoping to have a great time with raising some hens and looking forward to getting started. I live on a green belt behind us so we have concerns with Red Tailed hawks, Owl, Cara-Caras (aka Mexican Eagle), possum & coyote. I have not personally seen any 'coons, but they are in the area. We have three Chihuahuas and a larger mixed breed pooch (my avatar pic). Advice is appreciated & if you have any "if I could do it all over again" types of sage advice, I'm all ears.
