    Hi everyone! My name is Anna, and I'm currently living in McKinney, Texas, in the historic district. My husband and two kiddos (ages 10 and almost 7) and I are hoping to get a coop and get some chicks this spring, so I'm here to get informed and get some advice! :) I'm also hoping to get to know some like-minded local folks (we're new to McKinney) and find a local-ish place to get our chicks, rather than ordering them by mail since we are planning to start with only three or four chicks.

    Anyway, thanks for putting together such a cool forum. I've been browsing a bit before joining and it looks like there's lots of great info here. I look forward to getting to know y'all!

    ~Anna
