Spring has sprung here and I'm so excited I nearly wet my plants. Little humor to start with. I'm one of 11 residents here in this what the county refers to a Village. We are also home to Judge Roy Bean, law west of the pecos and boast the Texas Visitor Center, same name. I am the only one here that owns chickens all hens,5 and am about to get my first ever rooster possibly tomorrow. We are waiting for a call from the local feed Store which is in Del Rio 60 miles east of us. We are on a rooster waiting list and when they call we go. I'm very excited about the whole thing. I have 2 coops located in a good sized chicken run that is fenced in. Each coop will house 6-8 birds. Each morning I let the hens out and they forage in a good sized yard that we have fenced off from the people yard,ours. Currently all 5 hens sleep in one coop. I have 2 coops as I've lost a few chickens to predators. How should I incorporate my new rooster to my tiny flock? He'll be about 4-5 mos.old. Happy to be here. Can't wait to hear from y'all.
